Employment Programs

Our Employment Programs can help you find meaningful employment in the community. Depending on your individual needs, we can provide different levels of support so you can find and keep a job you enjoy.

How does the program work?

After attending an ACCES-VR orientation session and receiving a referral from them, our employment consultants can work with you to identify your employment goals, find a job, and provide supports to help you retain your job. We can assist you with:

  • Identifying job goals
  • Completing job applications
  • Writing resumes
  • Developing interviewing skills
  • Connecting you to local job opportunities
  • Accompanying you to job interviews
  • Meeting pre-employment requirements (like medical or drug testing)
  • Completing job-related documents (like income tax withholding forms)
  • Providing information to potential employers about hiring incentives
  • Removing barriers to employment (needed accommodations, assistive technology, etc.)
  • Receiving 1-on-1 support through a job coach

Our employment consultants will maintain ongoing contact with you and your employer to ensure a successful transition to work.

How can a job coach help me while I am working?

Your job coach will help you adjust to your new workplace. They can provide 1-on-1 support to assist you with:

  • Learning specific job tasks and work duties
  • Understanding your employer’s expectations
  • Resolving issues to ensure job satisfaction
  • Arranging for transportation, including travel training
