Job Search and Placement

Ramble’s team assists our apprentices in exploring career interests, creating resumes, and navigating the application and interview process. Once hired, we assist our graduates with transitional job coaching at no cost to their employer. During this transition, a job coach helps the graduate develop skills proficiency, assimilate into the workplace culture and identify “natural supports” – staff who are capable and willing to mentor our graduates for the long haul. 

 

When appropriate, our team also works with employers in “job carving” – tailoring a specific position to meet the needs of the employer while capitalizing on an apprentice’s strengths. 

 

We monitor all of our graduates to ensure stability in their jobs and provide supplemental coaching on an as-needed basis to support the graduate and their employer. Occasionally we support our graduates with secondary job placements if they are ready for new challenges or other circumstances that lead them to find new places of employment.

 

Since our founding, 37 individuals have participated in our programs and 29 have secured independent community employment while some still work at Ramble.
