The employment department at UCP is called Employment Solutions. We assist qualified job seekers who experience a disability to connect with employers who value what they bring to the workplace. Since the department's inception in 2006, Employment Solutions has supported 100 individuals in their job search journey. Our goal is to help them find, secure, and keep employment. All jobs are competitive and pay fair wages.
Our job seekers drive every step of the job-seeking process. When they come to us, they have hired a team of professionals and advocates who will work for and with them.
We start by helping them identify their talents and interests, work on resumes and cover letters, fill out applications, attend interviews, and arrange volunteering, job shadowing, and competitive employment.
A successful job placement is not necessarily defined by how long a new employee stays at a job, but by his or her satisfaction with the job.
To provide people who experience disabilities the highest quality job development services available.
