UW Employment Program

Our Clients Employment Needs Are As Unique As They Are

 Our clients work closely with experienced staff, at accessible locations, to evaluate their client’s strengths, skills, potential areas of growth, and goals. Clients can expect their employment journey to begin with an intake interview, records review, and vocational assessments. After which, they will explore career interests through job development and skill-building, resume development, and apply to jobs. After obtaining a job offer, UWEP will provide intensive training and continued support for your employment duration. Through every stage, UWEP has a service to fit your needs.
