Career Connections, a division of Arc Herkimer, assists people with disabilities and others in the community, who are seeking employment to achieve meaningful work based on each person's needs, desires, and abilities.
The process includes an intake—gathering information such as interests, needs, strengths, and future goals. Individuals can also try jobs out. Once placed, individuals will work with a Job Coach to ensure that they adjust, learn the new jobs, and get to know their supervisors and coworkers. Staff will also assist with finding job opportunities, filling out applications, and practicing interviews. For more information, click here!
