Personal, Prolonged, and Proactive Career Transition Support


 

Career Transition, Assessments, and Individual Action Plans are keys to success with all clients.  The discussion will target on what’s happening to careers today, with a focus on the following key areas:

 

  • Workplace Wellness – are we able to be productive at work with all the distractions of today?
  • Trends of Job Openings versus the Training of the Workforce – are we meeting the needs of employers?
  • Systematic De-motivators of the Social Support Systems in our communities – why work?

The Wounded Warrior Careers Demonstration has been collecting data on how to best serve injured veterans for the past five years.  It is a program of the National Organization on Disability, which has been in operation for 30 years.
