Other services are also available to help you get and keep a job. These include:

  • Personal Vocational Social Adjustment (PVSA) - Learn how to get and keep a good job. If you have issues that prevent you from having a good job, you can meet with someone to discuss these on a one-on-one basis.
  • Situational Assessment (SA)- Not sure what is the best job for you? During an SA, you can spend time with a personal instructor visiting and trying out different jobs in the community. This way you can decide what kind of jobs you like and have the skills to do. Also, employers can see you perform and might hire you.
  • Job Exploration - You can observe work sites which helps you understand more about what people do at different jobs.
