Description

**This is the second webinar in the TACE Job Development Exchange Series.

The purpose of this webinar is to demonstrate the innovative employment focused on-line tool kit. The on-line tool kit is organized around the six steps of the employment process from vocational exploration to job keeping and advancement.

The on-line employment tool kit provides placement providers with quick, useable, relevant and current, information, tips, worksheets, on-line links, and other resources to facilitate transition to employment for people with disabilities. The tool kit is organized around the Six steps to employment success: Vocational Exploration, Labor Market Exploration, Successful Job Seeking, Building Employer Connections, Successful Job Keeping Integration, and Successful Job Keeping: Career Advancement. There is also a seventh section that addresses benefit issues. The specific tools include topics such as: identification of transferable skills, understanding the role of social capital in placement, primary and secondary occupations,  jobs of the future, the top 10 tips for looking for a job, how to use application kiosks, how to request accommodations, and tips for getting along with supervisors.

Implications

The goal of this on-line tool kit is to get information to placement providers in a simple, quick and user-friendly manner.  Our goal is to continue development of the tool kit based upon the needs and preferences of providers to better disseminate the knowledge and strategies developed by disability researchers and practitioners.
