Module 3 Find A Job

<< Back to Punch-In Employment Course


Use your resources to network and find a job

The Find A Job module helps you set your job search in motion. A job search includes the way you discover, apply, and interview for employment. It may seem daunting, but it is important to be proactive and positive about your job search. One key is to use the supports you have for your job search, which includes networking with family and friends, as well as taking advantage of any opportunities you may have through school.

The career services department and disability services office at your school have many resources to help students through career exploration and provide connections to local employers. Take advantage of all of your options! This module will help you develop your networks, practice your strategy, and locate those jobs.

  1. You will identify networking opportunities within your circle of peers and family, as well as through community agencies.
  2. You will learn how to use social media to gain employment.
