Job Search Training

Unfortunately, some injuries and illness will cause long term restrictions that prevent workers from returning to their original employment.

Job search training programs vary in duration, based on the motivation and commitment of the injured worker. We understand that job seeking can be a lengthy process, and offer ongoing support and monitoring to assist injured worker’s to remain committed to the activities. Advantage Injury Management Services will provide practical sessions with a ‘hands on’ approach to job placement. Internal redeployment and external job search will be considered.
