The goal of our new Job Ready program is to better prepare the person with a spinal cord injury or spinal disease (SCI/D),by providing the necessary skills to gain employment.
Skills to be focused on will be resume writing, interview skills, knowledge of your rights as a disabled individual and how to request reasonable accommodations.
We will look to work with the colleges/universities in our area of service, primarily their Disabled Students Programs and Service (DSPS) department. Other resources can be found by clicking this link https://www.spinal-network.org/employment-programs-and-resources/
