The Custom Job Search. Supported Employment is designed to assist individuals to find and/or keep a job. This is achieved through the assistance of a Supported Employment Manager (job coach). Job coaches collaborate with job seekers to develop a career plan, set goals and expectations, and train on how to navigate the workforce. They also assist with career negotiation and on-the-job training. Along the way, job coaches offer strategies for self-advocacy and building natural supports on the job and in the community.
Uncover passions and realize dreams! Certified job coaches provide customized support to identify a job seeker's interests and passions. Using this information, the job coach and job seeker build a partnership based in trust and mutual respect. This pre-employment process is called Discovery. The job coach and job seeker then work side-by-side to develop a position that meets the interests and values of the job seeker and the needs of the business community. This results in career employment.
