  • Part of your work week will be in-person; you will spend time getting to know people and canvassing their communities, going out to businesses for informational meetings, tours, and interviews. 
  • Part of your work week will be remote; you will have the chance to work from home where you can connect with some people on your caseload virtually, work on resumes and applications, catch-up on paperwork/emails, make phone calls to businesses, enter billing reports and complete Discovering Your Personal Genius staging records, which is a record of what we learn about them and what informs the subsequent job search.
