Our mission is to assist persons experiencing disabilities to develop to their highest potential and achieve fulfilling lives. Employment Consultants bring this mission to life by working side by side with our clients to help them overcome obstacles and find meaningful employment.

Having a paying job is something many of us take for granted. Imagine having the desire to score your first real job; the satisfaction of your own responsibilities, the bonding and growth from being part of a team, and the reward from someone telling you "Good job!"

What if you had the skills to do the job, but not to get your foot in the door? What if there was a resource to advocate for you, make introductions, and help you get past the first-day jitters?

That's what makes being an Employment Consultant amazing. You get to build bridges between people seeking fulfillment through employment, and employers who value diversity and inclusion.

A "Regular" Day as an Employment Consultant

Well, there is no such thing. If you're looking for structure, and routine, this is not the job for you. If you are creative, driven, wanting to try new things to make an impact, and willing to fly by the seat of your pants when needed, read on...

Our Employment Consultants help real people in the real world. That means needing to be available for real situations, which might come at 5:00 AM, or 8:00 PM. Generally you would be working 40 hours a week, Monday through Friday. Tasks might including meeting a client on his or her first day on the job, helping to set-up their workspace; or meeting another client at the eleventh-hour on Friday to finish the last bit of their routine successfully.

This uncustomary schedule works great for individuals with flexibility and those who need flexibility. Our Employment Consultants team supports each other by restructuring schedules and lending a hand when needed. If you've ever been chained to a workstation with rigid schedule expectations, then you might value the freedom of managing your own time.
