Employment Preparation

Get set up for success

Prepare for Your New Career

At PRIDE Industries, we know that no two people follow the same employment path. Everyone has different needs, capabilities, and goals. That’s why we offer customized instruction, tailored to fit each individual’s situation. No matter your path, our services will help you find the job you want, and acquire the skills you need to get it. We’ll even help you coordinate with federal, state, and local agencies to get the support you need to reach your employment goals. If you’re a person with a disability, a military veteran, a former foster or at-risk youth, or a trafficking survivor, we can help you launch your next career. 

Are you currently receiving Social Security disability benefits? And are you interested in employment? If you are ready to go to work, or if you have questions about returning to work, we can help! PRIDE Industries is an approved Employment Network (EN) in the Ticket to Work Program.

Career Planning and Development Services

Planning and Coordination

Our Employment Coaches start by meeting with you to map out an employment plan. And if needed, we’ll include your family members and caregivers too.

Advocacy Services

Our Employment Coaches can help you determine your eligibility for various federal, state, and local support programs. And if you’d like, they can also help you apply.

Soft Skills Training

If needed, we can help you review general employment skills, which may include how to manage your time, take public transportation, and communicate in the workplace.

Skills Assessment

The first step towards your new career is to evaluate your current job skills, so you can discover what type of training you need for the position you want.

Vocational Training

Many careers require specific training. Some require certification. Our Employment Coaches can help you get the training you need to qualify for the position you want.

Job Search Services

When you’re ready to apply for that next job, we can help you complete job applications, draft a resume, write cover letters, and even prepare for interviews.

CARF Accredited

The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities was founded in 1966 (coincidentally, the same year that PRIDE Industries was founded). Known today as CARF International, the organization is an independent, nonprofit accreditor of health and human services in multiple areas, including employment services. Their accreditation of our services means that PRIDE Industries has met their high standards. Our CARF International accreditation has been renewed every year since we first applied in 1976.
