Individual Placement

If you would like to work for a company in Shasta County, the Opportunity Center can help you reach that goal through individual placement. You can meet with a Supported Employment Specialist who will help you do the following:

  • identify and eliminate any barriers to employment
  • write a resume that accurately describes your skills and interests
  • learn job skills through attendance in the Job Club
  • find a job that best matches your skills and interests

Once you have obtained a job with the help of the Supported Employment Specialist, the Opportunity Center will provide a job coach who will assist you in learning all aspects of your new job.

The Opportunity Center will stay in contact with you on a regular basis and participate with you in developing your work goals and objectives. If, for some reason, you are not able to keep a particular job, the Opportunity Center will help you find another job that is better suited to your interests and skills.
