The employer hires the job seeker like they would hire anyone else; no changes have to be made to the hiring process!
Once hired, the employer trains both the employee and a CEI job coach. A job coach is a CEI employee who is paid by CEI. The job coach is free to the employer.
The employee works with a job coach to learn the job duties. The job coach then works with the employee until he/she understands how to do the job independently.
The job coach fades out once both employer and employee feel like the job is being done well.
The job coach will check in periodically with the employer and the employee to make sure things are going smoothly. If help is needed he or she can return to the work site.
