Entering the workforce for the first time, or re-entering the workforce after lay-off or injury, illness or disability, is a time of great change for all of us.
It can be challenging and scary, and also exciting and rewarding. It is a time of asking the age-old question of “what do I want to do when I grow up?” at different stages of our life. Where do I begin? What can I do? Where do I look? Who will hire me?
These are all questions asked when an individual wants to enter or re-enter the workforce.
Vocational assessment and counseling, job search and interviewing skills training, and assistance with finding jobs are all part of the process to aid you in starting your job search.
My Expertise in Vocational Counseling
Diversified Disability’s services are provided to individuals with disabilities, career changers, and those in the school-to-work transition. They can be tailored to meet the specific needs and requirements of each individual, and are based on the outcome of initial discussions and requests.
Vocational counseling can help individuals to identify their interests, aptitudes and goals, and to develop the skills needed to effectively apply for work in their chosen field. The knowledge of the world of work, the job search and interviewing processes are the same.
The process varies when additional information is integrated into the decision-making process to include information about an individual’s restrictions and limitations; the impact, if any, on the occupational choice, transferability of skills, and if accommodations are needed.
