Tools used in the class include video-based instruction, role playing, or individual coaching. Topics include interpersonal communication, active listening, proper hygiene, being a team player, appropriate attitude, social boundaries, and customer service, etc.

During the “job search” phase, the Employment Support Manager uses the information and insights learned from the previous phases to provide guidance in the job search.
