The Job Finding service helps waiver participants in finding paid or volunteer work in the community.

Job Finding includes finding a specific job that matches the participant’s skills and interests with an employer’s needs. Successful job finding is a permanent job placement where the participant has worked for at least 30 days.

If the participant also is getting Behavioral Specialist Services (BSS), then Job Assessment and Job Finding should be done in a way that includes using the behavioral support plan and the crisis intervention plan.

An example of Job Assessment and Job Finding is being tested for different job skills, sharing areas of interest or experience that might be helpful in a job, and applying for a job with an employer who has already been contacted by the job finding provider.
