A learning experience on how to imporve and empower consumer on Job placement.
Job Placement Specialist (Current Employee) – San Marcos, TX – March 20, 2013
Finding jobs on line, making cold calls, researching employment industries, meeting with consumers/employers, and getting to know their needs and interest. I learned how to be an advocate for people with disabilities. Time management and making work week schedules as needed for job's related situations can be sporadic and demanding. Self-employed; but, work closely with the Director who stresses the importance of accurate information written or orally and the most enjoyable part of the job is when you actually find a job placement and successfully job coached a consumer that you know he/she is making a difference at their job and contributing to their community .
Teacher Assistant in Mathematics and Science (Former Employee) – San Luis Obispo, CA – February 19, 2018
I joined TeAMS because I thought a teaching related part-time job would help me in developing both my engineering fundamentals (math and science) and leadership skills. It certainly did, and looking back on my experience now, I am so grateful. The collaborative and supportive environment in which we discussed teaching strategies weekly prepared me to go into the field and work as an assistant high school math teacher.
