What is Supportive Employment
Employment Specialist makes employer contacts aimed at making a good job match based on clients' preferences (relating to what each person enjoys and their personal goals) and needs (including experience, ability, symptomatology, health, etc.,) rather than the job market ( i.e., those jobs that are readily available). An Individualized job search plan is developed and updated with information from the vocational assessment/profile form and new job/educational experience.
