Search

Your job search just got easier. Once you have completed a self-referral form, you will be paired up with one of our expert Job Developers who will work with you to find, apply to, and prepare for the right job for you. The goal of job development is to match workers with long-term, stable employment.

 

The first step is determining your eligibility through AHCCCS or DES Vocational Rehabilitation.  If you have questions about eligibility, call our office at (520) 790-7677.

Together we will determine your employment goals, and work with you to create a personalized plan for achieving them. We will connect you with community resources that will help you to succeed. If you are receiving social security (SSI/SSDI) benefits or other entitlements, we will help you determine the impact of work on your benefits.

Resume

Your job developer will assist you in editing and improving your resume and cover letter, or help you to create one from scratch. Even if you have minimal or no work history, we can help you determine which of your skills and experiences will highlight your best attributes on a resume and help you determine buzz words that employers search for when reviewing resumes.

Work

We don't abandon you once you get a job.  Now the real challenge has begun, keeping the job.  We will continue to provide coaching, counseling, and encouragement as long as you need it. 

 

We can also help you communicate with your employer if there is a need for a reasonable accommodation or if you are having difficulty performing the job or understanding the requirements. 

 

If the job is not a good fit, we will help you leave appropriately and find a job that is more suitable to your needs.
