Job assessment sites needed! What is it? A local business can become a job assessment site by providing the venue for short-term, trial work experiences to individuals in need of career exploration. These job tryouts can vary in time frame from one brief visit up to 120 hours of work that is completed at no cost to the employer. Skill assessments and direct supervision are provided by MV Advancements staff. Individuals participating in trial work experiences are covered under Oregon’s Workers Compensation Insurance, leaving business liability free.
What are the steps?
- Say, “Yes!”
- A job coach will schedule a time to come in and learn the particulars of the job needing done.
- The individual seeking assessment learns and performs the tasks under the direct supervision of the job coach.
- Pay nothing
