Welcome to the Job Development Exchange (JDX)
To meet the needs of both jobseekers and employers, the vocational rehabilitation system must approach job development strategically while increasing capacity and competencies. The Job Development Exchange (JDX) provides Vocational Rehabilitation Counselors (VRCs) and Community Rehabilitation Providers (CRPs) with the information and tools they need to successfully engage employers and address a wide range of barriers to employment. It offers timely resources via multimedia platforms and taps into the rich expertise of colleagues, businesses, jobseekers and national authorities to achieve employment goals.
