Understanding the Role of an Employment Specialist or Job Coach


In addition to assisting your business with hiring needs, PAEP staff provides on-the-job coaching and training to the employee to help the employee with a disability learn and perform the job accurately, efficiently and safely. We understand you may have concerns regarding the employee’s performance due to their disability, and that is why our presence is important.


The employment specialist/job coach will acclimate the employee to the work environment. With us there providing guidance, we make sure they are meeting your production standards and essential functions of the job. Our presence at the job is consistent until the employee has learned 100% of the job.


Become an Employer

If you have a staffing need for loyal, reliable, committed and passionate employees or interns, then PAEP can help. We support approximately 100 active job seekers whose background and skills are as varied as your business’ needs each year. For almost 40 years, PAEP has helped hundreds of small, medium and large employers find dedicated employees known for their diligence on the job and their longevity at their place of employment.


It is our goal to ensure that each job placement is a win/win for you and the employee. Our customized approach starts with your business’ needs. Our staff will spend time getting to know you and your organization and will help you identify entry level tasks that will improve your business’s efficiency and your bottom line. Once we have agreed on the primary business needs, our team will match those tasks to the talents and interests of the potential appropriate job seeker. We have had much success conducting pre-screening to identify the most qualified candidates, and enabling the employer to meet a short-list of excellent prospects. You control whom you meet, interview and eventually hire. However, we are not done at this point. 


Our team has trained Employment Specialist that facilitates on-site training needs, provides continuous on-the-job supports and coaching if needed, and communicates with you and your other employees on an ongoing basis. Our presence is determined by your needs as well as the employee’s. We aim to make sure the match is working and the new employee is comfortable within the first few weeks of hire, and will continue to support the coworkers, supervisors and team as a whole to maintain successful employment.


We have found that most PAEP clients can work independently once initial training as been completed, but every clients service is customized depending on the type of support they need. Many take public transportation to and from their jobs.  Employees form friendships with their coworkers and take great pride in their work. There are also many benefits to you as the employer. Hiring PAEP clients is a smart thing to do, a great way to diversify your workforce, improve efficiency, and demonstrate your commitment to improving the lives of others in your community.
