Vocational Preparation Services:This includes assessment, resume writing, interviewing preparation, and job search training, job placement assistance and travel training.
Training Services: Our job training program is an individualized approach that seeks to assist new employees in learning their new job tasks and functions, ensuring they meet employer expectations. This includes time management, the development of interpersonal coping strategies, proper hygiene and communication etiquette.
Support Services: Once the employee has successfully learned their position, has developed confidence to successfully perform their job and has successfully integrated in the employment community, Casmir staff will fade their training services but continue to provide ongoing support to the individual; they will also serve as a liaison between the individual and employer, work collaboratively with the individual’s team, ensuring professional growth and success in their place of employment. This will include monitoring employees to ensure job performance, productivity, and retraining as job functions evolve.
Resources: Casmir Cares is also a member of the Philadelphia Employment Forum which is a gathering of representatives from the Philadelphia IDS employment provider agencies, the Supports Coordination Organizations (SCO), Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR), and parents to promote employment and share information, ideas, and expertise. There continues to be a need to promote employment in order to avoid employment continuing to be a “back burner” issue. The Employment Forum meets every other month at various locations throughout the Philadelphia area.
The purpose of the Employment Forum is to promote the philosophy of work and employment for all individuals with disabilities within the Philadelphia area by exchanging information and facilitating communication between the employment forum and the community, influencing and shaping policies, and educating employers to the advantages of hiring people with disabilities.
