Whether you are curious about work, actively seeking, or already working, we’re here to help!

Where are you in YOUR journey?

Here are a few general tips:

  • Be careful of scams. For example, a potential employer will not need your child’s Social Security number.
  • Let your network – your friends and family – know that you are looking for work. It can be helpful having people cheering you on.
  • Don’t underestimate yourself. The job search and exploration can be hard at times.
  • Remember: Work looks different for everybody. It can also change based on the life stage you’re in. For some, this looks like 40 hours a week and others 20 hours per week; some people work 10 hours a month. Understand what work looks like for you and how work can help you reach goals you’re working towards.
  • Get the facts! When did you last learn how much you can earn? Make an informed decision about work. Websites give general benefits information. Contact your Service Coordinator and request individualized benefits counseling.

Get some tips and suggestions based on where you are in your employment journey. For more individualized support, connect with your Service Coordinator who can help you figure out some next steps. The first one is to add a goal related to employment in your Person-Centered Service Plan (PCSP). What you add to your plan related to employment does not impact your eligibility for Community HealthChoices (CHC).
