What to Expect
You should expect a qualified, pre-screened candidate. Along with that, an Employment Specialist will be assigned to the candidate that is able to support them on and off the job, as well as provide support to you, the employer. All services provided by our Employment Specialists are individualized and levels of support provided vary based on the needs of the candidate. You should expect regular communication from the assigned Employment Specialist to ensure that everyone is on the same page in regards to supports/ accommodations needed.
As employees of Job Path, Employment Specialists are insured, paid, and overseen by us. You hire the candidate, and we provide the Employment Specialist! There is no responsibility from you, the employer, for the Employment Specialist. A Certificate of Liability can be provided upon request.
What is Job Coaching?
Job Coaching is a support provided to your new employee to ensure they have the tools needed to quickly learn the job and jump right in to help your business succeed. An Employment Specialist (also called a Job Coach) will support the person in a wide variety of ways:

EMPLOYER TESTIMONIALS & SUCCESS STORIES
"It's always nice to have a diverse group of people working for you and what we find is by having people from all different walks of life we really mesh together. It's really nice to have that balance when somebody might not be having a great day. To see a friendly face and be able to brighten things up. Brad does that."
Dominic DeMaria, Executive Chef, Wegmans Food Markets
"We feel really good about it, excited about it. It [the internship program at Crickler] has given us a really good base of employees that we're able to pull from, kind of get a test drive of people and what their work capabilities are what they're going to be able to do for us on the line. It's really been positive for the people as well to be able to work alongside people with different capabilities and different abilities. We've hired five people from the program, and they are really great, motivated employees."
Mark Houseknecht, VP Operations, Crickler Vending Company
"We love having Job Path participants help out in our church office! It's always a pleasure hosting Community Based Workplace Assessments and learning about the participants' gifts and talents. I love having the opportunity to learn about each of them as individuals, and utilizing their skills. Quite often, the participants walk away having learned something new. We've had great experiences over the past 2 years, and love working with Rebecca and all of the job coaches. We look forward to continuing to support this program in the years to come."
Deb Bullock-Smith, Office Manager, Asbury First Methodist
