Registration link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/509996778036932097
The transition of students into integrated community settings for paid work experience requires significant supports and specialized services to be coordinated between school districts and other agencies. Learning to network and collaborate with employers within your community to create meaningful paid work experiences for your students will increase their post high school outcomes as well as prepare them to graduate college and career ready. Creating visual resumes captures a student’s true passions, interests and desires as they relate to their post-secondary goals for education & training, employment and independent living and allows potential employers to see them in action; significantly increasing their chances for employment opportunities. Creating visual resumes also engages the student in the job seeking process in a fun and productive way.
