Vocational Evaluation

Evaluations are conducted in a community business in line with the person’s interests. Rise’s evaluator is able to assess a person’s general work skills and behaviors as well as the specific job skills and physical demands required for a particular type of work. This also helps an individual determine if work in this field is a good fit. People are paid minimum wage while undergoing the work assessment.

Current career fields available for a customized evaluation include:

  • Retail
  • Clerical / reception
  • Production
  • Data entry
  • Food service
  • Activities (child care, senior care)
  • Janitorial 
  • Customer service
