Connecting Discovery to Job Development
Tricia Jones-Parkin, Project Director
Customized employment means individualizing the employment relationship between employees and employers in ways that meet the needs of both. The intent and purpose of the discovery process should always be competitive integrated employment. It is critical to understand the jobseeker’s contributions, skills, and tasks they want to do as well as the level of support needed. At the same time, it is equally critical to understand unmet business needs and how to align that with what the jobseeker can contribute. During this webcast, participants will learn the importance of connecting discovery to customized job development. Strategies that can be implemented to improve the transition from discovery to job development will also be discussed.
