Description

A brief for employment consultants and employment support professionals, offering them practical advice on how to find tasks and jobs for job seekers with disabilities. Finding tasks and jobs is one of the five elements of the comprehensive model of employment supports that seeks to increase competitive integrated employment. At many businesses, certain tasks never get completed because staffers are too busy or the task never gets assigned to anyone. This creates an opportunity for job seekers to pick up those tasks, creating a win-win for them and the company. A sample of employment consultants reported investing on average 57 minutes per day finding tasks and jobs.
