No One Is Unemployable: Creative Solutions for Overcoming Barriers to Employment.
Harney, Elisabeth E.
The goal of the WorkNet Model Career Development & Job Placement for people with barriers is to help even the most challenged job seekers begin and advance in careers they enjoy. This paper presents one key component of the WorkNet Model, a practical process for creatively overcoming any barrier a candidate faces. The chapter includes: the WorkNets Ten Step Process for overcoming any barrier; how to think like the employer so one can identify and effectively overcome barriers; and how to use WorkNet's Five Approaches to overcome barriers. The process is designed for career specialists serving people considered difficult to place, including those transitioning from welfare, incarceration, homelessness, addiction, domestic violence, poverty, injury, mental illness, disability, and other challenges. The process also provides a focused and effective approach for career specialists serving more traditional and receptive candidates, such as graduating college students, career changers, recently displaced professionals, vocational students and others eager and equipped to begin careers.
