Job Shadow

A Job Shadow can serve several purposes.  A Job shadow is commonly used for career exploration and is very popular with high school students who are unsure as to what path they want to take.  Job Shadows are often times used with Adults who have several questions or concerns of whether or not a specific career would be a good fit for them.  A job shadow will allow the opportunity for one-on-one interaction with the employer and the opportunity to ask questions, tour the facility, and get a feel for the type of work environment your desired career entails. Job Shadows can be accompanied (our staff is present) or unaccompanied (you and the employer).  

Temporary Work Experience (TWE)

A Temporary Work Experience (TWE) is a great option for individuals with little to no previous work experience or for individuals who are unsure as to the severity of their physical restraints.  A TWE may also be used for individuals who are trying to gauge work tolerance or career exploration. A TWE allows consumers to gain experience and an understanding of employers expectations with a hands on approach in the workforce.  With the right tools/resources, A TWE often times leads to permanent employment.
