EMPLOYMENT COUNSELOR

About Us

We are a new company, with experienced leaders who are passionate about helping people with developmental disabilities find meaningful employment! We serve participants in Sacramento, Woodland, Davis, Rancho Cordova, and Roseville and are looking for people who are just as passionate as us to join our team.

Job Description

As an Employment Counselor, you will help adults with developmental disabilities build the skills necessary to gain and maintain competitive integrated employment. Using our training, curriculum, and your own ingenuity and talent you will help participants develop:

  • Job readiness skills

  • On the job hard and soft skills

  • Coping strategies

  • Social skills

  • Community resources

  • And more!

*This job will begin as a remote position, then transition to a community-based position following the relaxation of Covid-19 restrictions.

Requirements

We don’t care if you have 20 years in the industry or none, what we want to know is:

1. Can you build trusting relationships?

2. Can you teach new skills?

3. Can you thrive in a team AND on your own?

4. Are you driven to see results?

5. Can you stay calm and focused around challenging behaviors?

If you can honestly say yes to these, then we can teach you the rest!

In line with that philosophy, rather than an initial phone screen to review your work experience, we ask that you take 2 assessments to help us determine your ability to thrive with us. They will be emailed to you after you apply and take about 20 minutes altogether. Consider this your first interview. If you do well on these, we'll call you for a second interview. Hope to see you on Zoom soon!
