Supported employment allows individuals to be supported by a Career Coach in their place of employment. A Career Coach can help an individual learn the skills they need to succeed in the workplace.
How it works:
- A trained Goodwill Career Navigator works to assess the individual’s goals, needs, skills and other factors in order to help identify compatible jobs.
- Once employment is secured, a Goodwill Career Coach may be assigned to work alongside the individual at their new job to help them learn necessary job tasks or communication skills.
- The Career Coach will stay with the individual to help them maintain employment and become more fully integrated into their work culture.
