Policies and Programs

The Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce, Vocation Rehabilitation provides an overview of steps to approaching employment.  Steps include:

“1. Identify your job goal and plan the services you need.

You and your counselor decide on a job goal that makes sense for your disability. It should also make sense based on what job openings there are. DVR can help you find your talents and interests. We can also help you search the job market. You and your counselor talk about the employment problems that bring you to DVR. Together you decide what services you need to get a job.

2. Write a plan for employment.

You must have a written plan to get the services you need. We call it your individualized plan for employment (IPE). Your counselor can help you with this. It describes the steps you will take to meet your work goal.

3. Complete the IPE.

You can start getting the help you need after you and your counselor agree to your plan. How long it takes you to complete the plan depends on you and your needs.”
