Jersey Cape offers a mobile and community-based Supported Employment Program that provides assistance to all qualified individuals in their selection, attainment and retention of integrated employment.
We are funded by the NJ Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services, the NJ Division of Mental Health Services and the NJ Division of Developmental Disabilities, to provide employment-related services to Cape May County adults who desire to work.
We invite you to work with our professional career counselors who can provide vocational assessments, career counseling, job search assistance, job skill training and long term follow-up support.
We offer: Personalized Vocational Experiences, Personal Employment Consultant, On-the-Job Training, Employment Advocacy, Individualized Coaching, Vocational Assessments, Resume & Cover Letter Preparation, Interview Training, Career Counseling, Job Search Assistance, Ongoing Support, Extended Follow-Up
Individuals will work one-on-one with their own Employment Consultants to strengthen job-related skills, prepare for the application/interview process, master the essential functions of the job and learn how to stay employed.
Ongoing Support & Monitoring
Employment Consultants may provide behind-the-scenes or visible support, such as on-the-job training, employment advocacy and job site visits. It is at the discretion of each individual as to the type of support they wish to have during their employment. Ongoing support is available for as long as the individual is active in the Supported Employment Program.
In addition to assisting with employment-related concerns, Jersey Cape’s Supported Employment Program refers individuals to community agencies for assistance with other needs such as transportation, housing, food, clothing, health care, education/training and legal assistance.
Jersey Cape Supported Employment consultants have helped individuals find employment in security, retail, administrative/secretarial, janitorial, healthcare, fine arts, outdoor labor and construction, welding and recycling industries. No industry is off limits. Our consultants can help make your dreams of self-employment a possibility as well. For further information, please contact us at (609) 465-4117.
