Supervise Mentally Disabled Adults who work in the community.
Job Coach (Current Employee), Southfield, MIMarch 28, 2014
Most of the time I am prompting the clients on how to be appropriate on the job. I assign tasks and give very specific directions on how to complete them. With another job coach we work as a team to make sure clients do not run out of work/ product. Clients work in various settings which include retail, janitorial, production and other volunteer sites. – more... Being a job coach is very rewarding because I am a positive influence on the clients daily and they receive a sense of purpose. . – less

I believe this is a very good company and it has been around for over 100 years
Supported Employment Specialist/Job Coach (Former Employee), Chicago, ILOctober 8, 2012
Pros: having the jewish holiday off when fisable.
Cons: working some national holidays
A typical day at work would consist of meeting with clients that was scheduled for that day profoming an intake if this was a first time visit. Information would be gather from an interview with the client to evaluate the client's vocational needs and determine what barriers to employment client was facing. Once this was completed together an IPE (individual – more... plan of employment) would be created. The client would then be given a date to participate in job readiness training either in a group or individually. Then this Employment Specialist would contact specific employers by phone to set up a meeting to inform that employer of a good fitting candidate that might be the match he or she was looking for.
One thng I learned in my job is to never send a client to an employer that will not fit the needs of that employer. This is how you keep the employer happy and keep good relationships.
Co-workers got along very well and was always willing to help when needed.
I would say one of the hardest parts of the job was keeping the staffing appointments ever eight weeks with the Department of Rehab Services due to sheduling conflicts.
The most rewarding part of my job was seeing the client accomplish his goal and get hired. To know both the employer and the client are both completely satisfied. – less
