Career Planning

Greater Mercer County’s PREMIER agency in providing CAREER PLANNING services for people with special needs and developmental disabilities.

The Arc Mercer has exceptionally caring and dedicated staff that strive to help an individual’s goal become a reality when it comes to finding a career. Upon entry, staff meets with each individual to discuss possible career options. Various career options can be explored or a training placement can be implemented immediately, depending on the needs and desires of the individual.

Once a career goal is established, the individual engages in specific skills training with community employability as the end goal. Specific to each career track, the individual learns the process for seeking a job using the latest technology. They also acquire and practice interviewing skills. Most importantly, through training the individuals gain an understanding of the key factors that help maintain employment. The Arc Mercer’s attentive and devoted staff supports the individual each step of the way-from job hunting to adjusting the workplace environment.
