The Best Resource for Comprehensive Job Development Skills

Job Development Essentials CoverMany social media posts use superlatives that often end up being more hype than substance.  In this case, “best” is a deliberate and valid word choice.  Job Development Essentials:  a guide for job developers is a comprehensive manual for all of the techniques and strategies you need to master.  It really captures the diversity and duality of our roles:

“Whatever the job title – job developer, employment specialist or account exec. – the task of job development involves linking employers with job seekers and job seekers with employers.  Regardless of what they’re called…, all have the same fundamental task:  to find jobs for people who seek them and, in many cases, to help ensure that job seekers remain in the workforce…Certain job developers have the luxury of devoting all of their time to these duties; others juggle a variety of responsibilities.  Acting as the bridge between these two worlds – those of employers and job seekers – is a daunting role…Balancing these competing demands is the art of job development.”
