Placement Coordinator, Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development, Vocational Rehabilitation Services
“I provide individualized job placement services to people with disabilities and DirectEmployers Association’s resources like VocRehab+ are invaluable elements in my toolkit. The National Labor Exchange (NLx), AbleTooWork, and the VocRehab+ emails with staffing needs from DE member employers allow me to share leads more confidently with my clients, as well as with colleagues, because I know the employers involved value diversity. I follow a dual-customer approach that prioritizes positive outcomes for business partners, as well as my clients, and the connections made possible through DE help me to understand businesses’ needs better. Week after week, DE and VocRehab+ enable me to help those I serve more confidently, efficiently, and effectively.”
