hireAbility Employment Services in New Jersey
In New Jersey hireAbility clients first register with the New Jersey Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services (DVRS) or the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD), where they will be assessed to determine skill sets and provided with a customized plan for employment for the service agency of their choice to follow.
At hireAbility, clients are matched with a community employment specialist who will follow their customized plan for employment and help them prepare a resumé, assist with online applications, set up employer visits and ultimately help them land a career. After starting work, they receive support on the job until they are able to do it on their own, then the community employment specialist will fade away.
