Work Preparation

Perspectives Employment Services prepares participants for employment through a curriculum of topics including proper work attire, how to present oneself to an employer, what questions to ask at a job interview, and other helpful advice to ensure work readiness.

Interest & Aptitude Testing

Participants are authorized for vocational assessment through the Office of Rehabilitation Services. An Interest and Aptitude Inventory then helps to determine which job industries are most suitable according to the individual's preferences and abilities.

Soft Skill Building

Perspectives Employment Services helps individuals to develop a variety of skills useful in the work environment, including communication, enthusiasm and attitude, teamwork, networking, critical thinking, problem solving, and professionalism.

Person-Specific Placement

Through a one-on-one personal approach, the Perspectives Employment Services Job Developer establishes a detailed understanding of each individual's skills and interests, and matches prospective employees with jobs that meet their specific needs and capabilities.

Resumé Building

Perspectives Employment Services provides participants with the instruction and guidance needed to compose an effective professional resumé of skills and experience for job applications.

Community-Based Work Assessment

Participants are provided opportunities to experience a variety of job types and work settings to assist in identifying their unique skills, abilities and interests, and to evaluate their compatibility with either part-time or full-time employment.

Adaptive Accommodation Requests

Perspectives Employment Services assesses the individual needs of each program participant to determine whether they may require any high tech or low tech devices that will assist in their continued success on the job.

On-the-Job Training

During the initial employment period, a job coach personally assists each new employee to help them become comfortable and familiar with their workplace environment, and addresses other needs and concerns that the new employee may have.

Transportation Planning

Perspectives' hands-on transportation planning program educates participants on how to use public transportation routes and connectors. A member of our team will travel with the program participant initially to build confidence in using transportation independently.

Job Retention Supports

Perspectives Employment Services provides continual assistance and support to individuals once they are employed, in order to ensure that they maintain employment and enjoy further success.
