Community Employment Services

Community Employment Pictures Clovernook’s comprehensive employment services are focused on the individual, not just the job placement. They include an array of strategies geared toward helping individuals prepare for, obtain, and maintain meaningful employment.

Vocational Exploration:
Whether re-entering the job market or seeking employment for the first time, a short-term work experience can sometimes be helpful in acquiring general work skills and understanding the demands and rewards of specific occupations. Facility or community based job sites can usually be developed for this purpose. Also, career interest testing can be completed to assist in determining vocational goals.

Job Placement:
Clovernook’s job placement specialists are highly experienced at linking individuals who are seeking competitive, long-term employment with employers who have a need for their particular skills and interests. We take a business approach to job development, recognizing that motivated employees are the key to an employer’s success.

Job Coaching:
Once an individual begins a new job, Clovernook staff can provide temporary direct worksite instruction for the mastery of job duties as well as consultation regarding worksite adaptations that may be useful.

Job Supports:
Provides support to individuals employed in the community in maintaining independence at the job site and facilitating communication with supervisors and co-workers.
