Teaming Up for Employment Services

"Employment services" is a term that refers to the guidance, activities, supports, assessments, and services that can help someone get a job, keep a job, or get a better job. Since this covers a lot of territory, we'll break this page up into information for job seekers and information for community employment service providers.

On our Employment page, we noted that Indiana is an Employment First state. That means "real jobs for real wages" in the community should be the first option for Indiana job seekers. As a result, the information we provide here on our Employment Services pages highlights information about and the process and services involved in what we sometimes refer to as "competitive integrated employment."

What We Do (and Don't Do)

The Center on Community Living and Careers provides education and training to Indiana employment specialists and consultants (also called job coaches) and to VR counselors and staff. We also provide information to families, young adults, and transition teachers and professionals through our new Family Employment Awareness Training.

We are not an employment provider and do not have lists of job openings. We do, however, work with both Indiana Vocational Rehabilitation and community employment providers around the state to improve the delivery and quality of employment services to young adults and adults with disabilities and their families.

Whether you're a job seeker, a parent, an employment specialist, or community employment provider manager, you'll find information here.  Explore:
