Career Planning

Through career planning, members receive assistance to help them obtain, maintain, or advance in competitive employment or self-employment.

It is a focused, time-limited service that engages a participant in identifying a career direction and helps them develop a plan for achieving competitive, integrated employment at or above the state’s minimum wage.

Members who participate in career planning work with staff to evaluate their skills and interests using a variety of different tools and assessments. These may include:

  • Job preference inventory
  • Job sampling
  • Situational assessment
  • Adult vocational profile
  • Job skills inventory
  • Individual skills inventory
