Community Options has been providing employment services for the Mass Rehabilitation Council for more than ten years. These services are tailored to the needs of the individual, with respect to the degree to which that person is able and willing to be involved. For many, this means extensive assistance and support. For others it may amount to online job searches, referrals for positions, and counseling during the job search process.
Assessments are used to determine a person’s “job readiness”, particularly for individuals who lack significant prior work experience. The focus is on three types of work: office and clerical; custodial, and food service.
Vocational Counseling includes resume development, direct job search and assistance with interviewing skills, as well as accompanying people on interviews. We also provide ongoing counseling and support and will help design ongoing supports with a business when necessary.
