TACE’S ALL-NEW JOB DEVELOPMENT EXCHANGE

Enhance your ability to help jobseekers with disabilities achieve employment outcomes.

Vocational Rehabilitation Counselors (VRCs) and Community Rehabilitation Providers (CRPs) must effectively interest employers in hiring their clients. In our current economy, with unemployment over nine percent, businesses are inundated with individuals seeking employment. Many employers have little time or interest in hearing from us. The rehabilitation system needs new job development skills and tools in order to successfully create employment options for persons with disabilities.
  
The Job Development Exchange (JDX) is designed to provide VRCs and CRPs with the information and tools they need to successfully engage both large and small employers. It will address barriers to employment and effective practices for overcoming them.

The primary function of the JDX is to connect the community of practitioners. Its participants will be able to tap into the rich expertise of colleagues, businesses, jobseekers and national authorities via multimedia platforms and networking tools.

The JDX launched in July with two webinars: “An Overview of Employment Approaches and Strategies to Serve all Persons” and an “Introducing the Online Toolkit for Job Placement and Employment Professionals” (both of these webinars are archived) and will be followed by an evolving menu of timely resources, tools and interactive learning opportunities.

The next JDX webinar topics range from core competencies to practical tips to cutting edge practices, including:
