Careers In Progress

Employment Services


The Bridges BTC Employment Services Team was created more than five years ago to meet the high demand for employment training and assistance. Our goal is to tailor our services according to the needs and desires of our individuals. Unlike traditional job placement agencies, we take the time to explore our individual’s career goals. Careers in progress provide service to Brevard County, Daytona Beach, St. Augustine and Flagler County.

Services that Match the Needs of Individual and Employer

FOR EMPLOYERS:

We meet the workforce needs of area businesses by providing qualified, productive, and dedicated individuals while providing the necessary support to sustain successful career placements and promote career advancement opportunities.

FOR INDIVIDUALS:

Our Employment Services Team doesn’t just find jobs for our individuals, we are dedicated to finding the perfect employment match for them. We believe in networking with our community and business partners to open the doors to better paying and more fulfilling jobs. We are currently serving more than 160 individuals in Brevard County in our many programs.

Career Readiness Workshops

We offer our individuals a series of job readiness workshops where they learn how to land a job and what they should expect once employed. We assist our individuals with a variety of career skills, such as application and resume tips, proper greetings, interviewing techniques, follow-up protocol, and how to handle change and conflict in the workplace. During this process, each individual participates in practice mock interview to prepare for the interview process. Our workshops also offer individuals the chance to network and share ideas with fellow job seekers.

Employment Development

We work diligently to identify employment opportunities within the community by networking with various businesses and Chambers of Commerce. Our job coaches provide expert advice regarding resume construction, interview tips, and other job-hunting skills. Once our individuals have gained a position we will continue to support them, as well as the business, to ensure successful long-term employment.

On-the-Job Training

We partner with several businesses in Brevard County to provide paid, on-site training opportunities for our individuals. This opportunity is ideal for job seekers looking to gain experience in a particular field. Our on-the-job Training sites include opportunities in fields such as automotive, clerical, medical, janitorial, food service, technological, and more.

Supported Employment

We offer unique employment services to individuals with more significant disabilities who may require more constant, ongoing support to maintain successful employment. These services include employment development, job coaching, and other post-hire support.

Funding Source

Contracted with Vocational Rehabilitation. Private Pay Services available.
