Creating A Successful Track Record Of Employment
Great Bay Services' Skills, Training and Assessments, Employment Program (S.T.E.P.). gives individuals the opportunity to participate in a 16-week classroom program where they receive instruction in all aspects of finding, securing, and maintaining a job in their community.
Instructors engage every learner on a personal level to help them develop practical skills such as how to look for a job, how to ask for and fill out an application, how to interview successfully, and proper workplace etiquette.
The second phase of the program includes the chance to volunteer at a variety of local non-profit businesses with a Career Specialist from Great Bay Services honing their skills and formally evaluating how they fulfill each task, so appropriate job matches can be found after they complete the program.
Our ACRE-Certified Career Specialists are paired one to one with individuals on the job, and conduct periodic check-ins with both the customer and business manager.
Great Bay Services’ Job Developer coordinates and collaborates with New Hampshire Vocational Rehabilitation to assist people in achieving their personal employment goal.
The combination of Great Bay Services’ S.T.E.P. program, work supports from our Career Specialists, and the efforts of our Job Developer, have resulted in 56% of our clients working at a job in the local community - a higher percentage than with many other similar agencies.
