NCI’s Individual Placement (IP) Program provides assistance to participants to obtain employment in their community. Through our IP program, individuals who have shown that they are ready for employment within the community begin the job development process. Working one-on-one with our job developers, we assist participants with every aspect of a job search including creating resumes, filling out applications online, shopping for interview and work attire, practicing interview questions through mock interviews and more. Once hired, we provide job coaching, case management and assistance as needed to ensure that the individual is successful in their role. Other services available include on the job training, situational assessments, personal vocational social adjustments, and job site consolation. Building sustainable relationships with local businesses and employers in the community has been key to the success of our IP program!
Meet Steven! Steven has been part of the NCI family for quite a while. He currently participates in our Community Living Services (CLS) department and has worked several of our Supported Employment Crews, including Caltrans and Camp Roberts! With all of the vocational training and support Steven was able to receive through our programs, both he and his job developer were able to land him a job at the Paso Robles Inn Steakhouse. Steven was awarded Employee of The Month for August 2018 and we could not be more excited for him! Keep up the good work, Steven!
