Strategies for Employment: Preparing, Finding and Retaining Work [webcast]

When: Wednesday, March 22 @ 7pm

The world of work can be an important and meaningful way to build a good life. If you have a loved one with a disability who has employment-focused goals, then this webcast is for you! 

Join us to hear from job developers who will discuss strategies that can support people who are preparing for employment or currently searching for job opportunities. The webcast will also look at ways people can continue to expand on their employment goals even if they already have a job. In this webcast, we will discuss:

  • Is employment a good fit for your loved one?
  • Key considerations for managing expectations and setting realistic goals;
  • Tips for preparing and navigating the job-seeking process; 
  • The role of a job developer and employment agency;
  • Strategies for selecting the right professionals to join your team;
  • The role of families in supporting employment goals for loved ones with a disability.

This webcast includes a live Q&A with our panelists.
