Supervised Job Search

DescriptionAfter receiving an assessment from either a DHR case manager or a contracted partner, and determined to be work ready, participants may work one-on-one with a case manager to find suitable. Participants may receive assistance completing applications, creating/updating resumes; receiving job referrals, etc., from any contracted provider that provides one-on-one supervised job search or with the one- on-one assistance of any A-RESET case manager. Case managers will conduct follow ups, monthly at minimum, to address any barriers while completing job search. After a period of 3 months with no employment, a reassessment will be completed to determine other appropriate activities in which the participant could access to reach success and self-sufficiency.
