When Would a Job Club Be a Good Fit?
The job club can be a great solution for someone who does not need intensive one on one job search help. The job club includes job seeking skills building, job development tips and oversight, and peer support. If your consumer needs to get ‘tuned up’ to find a job, this will help motivate and excite them. If your consumer needs to get into a better daily job search routine, job club can provide the needed structure.
The job club is not only a quality rehabilitation piece but it is also an economical fit. The price of the job club is much less than traditional hourly job development and/or job seeking skills training. You get a lot more bang for your buck by going with this service for consumers who benefit from group experiences and learning!
