How do I find a job that matches my skills?

ANSWER

State government agencies and health care facilities offer job rehabilitation services to help you find the right job or succeed in the one you've got. They can help you:

  • Figure out what you're good at and match you with jobs that fit your skills and abilities
  • Think about what you want -- and don't want -- in a career
  • Define your job goals These programs may offer tests that can help you think about your interests, strengths, and limitations. You can also look online for self-assessments that can help you better understand your job needs. Counselors may use a computer database to match jobs with your work history and your current physical and mental skills. They can also support and guide you through your decision-making process. They can even help you write your resume and learn techniques for job interviews.
