Getting a job

Working at a job you like can give you purpose and self-confidence. Finding a job isn't always easy — but you're not in it alone. You can tell the people you know that you're looking for a job, and you can take advantage of various resources designed to help people find jobs.  

If you're concerned about your ability to get a job, you can challenge your doubts: 

  • Can I work? Given the right supports, anyone who wants to work can work. Better yet, you can find meaningful work that matches your strengths and interests.
  • What if I don't know how to look for a job? If you need help writing a resume or you have questions about finding a job, you can seek help at WorkForce Centers across the state.
  • What if I need training? You can work with a vocational rehabilitation counselor to get the training you need to return to work, to enter a new line of work or to enter the workforce for the first time.
  • How can I find the right job? You can tell the network of people who support you that you want to make work a part of your plan. You can also tap into your social networks — the relationships and connections you have with people in the community. Any of these contacts might have job leads.
