The Employment Services and Counselling program is a comprehensive program that assists job seekers with disabilities. The program provides a continuum of services with the ultimate goal of securing employment and promoting employment inclusion.
ResourceAbilities has three offices with Employment Specialists who provide the following services to job seekers:
Career Decision Making
Through various assessment tools, skills and education are evaluated to assist job seekers in determining their future career path.
Once the career path is determined, we assist individuals in identifying and applying for appropriate education and training opportunities as well as to appropriate funding sources.
Job search skills are taught to better prepare individuals to find and retain employment. Labour market information is also provided, as well as assistance with resume preparation, cover letters, and interview skills. We aim to build confidence and assist people with disabilities in achieving independence.
We provide assistance to both the employee and employer to ensure continued success in the workplace.
