Information

Use Texas Rapid Access to Career and Economic Resources

(TRACER) and Systems for Application, Verification, Eligibility,

Referral and Reporting (SOCRATES) to analyze the local labor

market to:

• determine employer needs;

• determine emerging, targeted, and demand occupations;

• identify employment opportunities that will allow participants

to meet the goal of 80 percent wage replacement of their

previous wage; and

• identify employer-based training opportunities, such as OJT or

customized training.

This analysis and the job seeker’s job search experience are

important activities in the development of the IEP.
