~~“Career Planning Service Description
Career planning is a person-centered, comprehensive employment planning and support service. It provides consultative, evaluative assistance for waiver program participants to enter into, or advance in, competitive employment or self-employment. It is a focused, time-limited service engaging a participant in self-discovery, identifying a career direction and developing a plan for achieving competitive, integrated employment at or above the state’s minimum wage. The outcome of this service is documentation of the participant’s stated career objective and a career plan used to guide individual employment support.
Career planning includes:
• Activities that are primarily directed at assisting an individual with identification of an employment goal; and
• A plan to achieve this goal (e.g., job exploration, job shadowing, informational interviewing, assessment of interests, labor market research) that are associated with performing competitive work in community integrated employment.”
