Integration of Trade Services for Dislocated Workers: A Comprehensive Guide

D-400.5:

Follow-up

Services During

and After

Training

(continued)

Supportive Services: Continue WIA-funded supportive services

after the participant successfully completes the training, if

appropriate. Participants often need supportive services until they

get a job and start receiving paychecks. (Review your Board’s

supportive services policy for details.)

Job Development: Identify available positions in your workforce

area with the help of your job developers or the Workforce

Center’s BSU. Work with these staff members to create a good job

match between the employer and the job seeker. Coordinate the

employer’s requirements with the newly obtained skills and

credentials of the job seeker to create a win-win situation for both

of your customers—the employer and the job seeker. OJT is

considered a particularly valuable resource for participants. A

creative BSU representative may find that employers are more

willing to establish an ongoing OJT program if short-term

prevocational skills training, remedial education, or intensive duallanguage

training precedes the OJT.

Job Readiness: Provide job readiness workshops that include

topics such as interviewing skills, dressing for success, or resume

writing.

Gather Performance Information: After the participant finds

employment, continue regular contact to gather additional

information. Enter all information into TWIST.

D-400.6:
