Developing a comprehensive picture of a client’s strengths, interests, experiences, and challenges informs the job search in terms of job type and employment setting. Instead of conducting traditional vocational assessment that is characterized by office-based assessment, testing, work adjustment activities, and set-aside jobs, the employment specialist seeks to gather information about the person over the first few meetings. Using information from the vocational profile, the employment specialist and client develop an individualized employment plan. The vocational assessment is ongoing. New information about the client is gleaned from regular work experiences and is added to the vocational profile.

Keywords:   vocational profile, employment plan, documentation, progress note
