Customized Employment: Using Handheld Technology to be Independent and Successful at Work Virtual - 27572

During this free session, participants will learn how many students are using smartphones and tablets to support themselves in order to be ready for work, get to work, and be successful on the job. These methods can help with remote ways you can receive supports from your employment specialist and participate in Customized Employment Discovery activities. Smart devices help you market yourself, make decisions about work, and connect with employers as well as be as independent as possible once you get to work. Built-in features and generic and specialized apps help you keep calm and at your best; know what to do next; make good on-the-job decisions; and be timely, organized, and communicative. No one technology or app works for everyone, but by looking at your needs, preferences, and exact job tasks, we can put together a technology plan that fits.
