Are you having trouble using “tests” to guide a consumer toward a career or a job? Join the next webinar on Work Experiences and Discovery. “Discovery” is defined as an alternative to traditional evaluations and how they relate to work experiences. The two strategies will be discussed along with clarifying the outcomes of work experiences. All persons in a work experience offer us information if the purpose of the work experience is clear from the beginning. Work experiences are often used to learn about the job seeker’s interests in a career sector, contributions to an employer, and to learn both social and physical environments that the job seeker excels. Work experiences are also sought to teach the job seeker targeted skills in his area of interest or to “catch” an employer’s interest for a possible hire. This session will review how to target these outcomes and how to capture the information in a meaningful way to guide the job seeker toward a meaningful career.

This is the fourth of five webinars in the TACE Transition Webinar Strand: Work Experiences for Youth.
