Your Employment Consultant will take the time to get to know you and your goals, such as: What kind of job you want, where you would like to work and what your time restrictions may be. Then, you two will develop a resume to begin sending to potential employers, and applying for jobs both online and in person. Your Employment Consultant will be doing work on your behalf in between your appointments, such as talking to employers, applying to jobs and job developing.

DO i qualify?

There is no such thing as being overdressed!
We are here to represent you professionally. It is always a good idea to come in clean, presentable clothes. If we are going to an interview or out to job develop, you should take extra care to dress nicely such as slacks and a button down, or other styles of business casual.

How long does it take to get a job?

Talk to your case manager about being assessed for a referral. 

If you've already gotten a referral, call our office, and we will get you set up with a consultant.

Your new Employment Consultant will call you to schedule your intake appointment, and will begin scheduling appointments with you based on your level of need. They will also be doing some work, such as talking to potential employers, when you're not sitting in their office!

There is no definitive timeline. Just like anyone else who is unemployed, we will work through the process of job hunting, resume building, and interviewing with you to secure employment you love. This could take a few weeks to a few months, or even longer. There is no timeline for job hunting.

We work exclusively with persons with disabilities of varying types and severity. At this time, we only serve clients referred to us by DSHS who fall into one of two categories: DDA or DVR.

What's the Difference?

How do I start?

No. Each client is different: their goals, preferences, barriers and skills. We take the time to learn about each client and what they want, so we can best match them with a job that is meaningful and fulfilling. 

Clients who fall under DDA contracts tend to require services for longer terms than those who fall under DVR contracts. This may include career- length coaching or aid in finding multiple jobs over the course of multiple years.
