Welcome to our Job Seekers Links and Resources page. We have organized a list of our trusted partners and resources to help you get started on your way.

One of the most important resources for a job seeker with disabilities is the Kentucky Department of Vocational Rehabilitation.  These three short videos below will tell you more about how to access their resources.

The first video is an overview of the services that are offered.  The next two videos detail two of the most popular vocational rehabilitation programs.  The Supported Employment program is for job seekers who would like to receive the services of one of our service providers.  You must first enroll with vocational rehabilitation to receive a referral to a service provider.

The third video details a new program, Pre-Ets, specifically designed for high school students who receive special education services and are transitioning to the world of work. Again, you will need a referral to use this program, but you can contact the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation for more information.
