Coaching Sessions

How to disclose a disability:

(Available only to jobseekers in Northeast Florida.) Learn how and when to talk to an employer about your disability. You'll spend 20 - 30 minutes with a staff member who can help you understand your rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and resources that might be available to help you perform your job duties.  You'll be able to work through how to discuss your disability in an interview or with your current employer.  Call (904) 356-JOBS (5627) to schedule an appointment at one of our career centers.  Find a list of our locations here.

How to talk about your background:

(Available only to jobseekers in Northeast Florida.) If you have a criminal background, knowing how and when to talk to an employer can be challenging. You'll spend 20 - 30 minutes with a staff member who can help you talk about what happened and make the case for hiring you to a potential employer. You can also learn about resources to help you make a fresh start. Call (904) 356-JOBS (5627) to schedule an appointment at one of our career centers.  Find a list of our locations here.
