What is a vocational evaluation?

A vocational evaluation helps you discover a career and/or education path that is a good fit for you based on your work history, interests, aptitudes and abilities. The evaluation will help you determine if there are any areas to work on before you start a job or training program.

Your vocational rehabilitation counselor will use the information learned during the vocational evaluation process to create an individualized rehabilitation/employment plan best suited for you. The plan will include steps to help you achieve your employment goals.

What happens during a vocational evaluation?

We get to know you and your current situation by asking questions about your:

  • Living situation
  • Education/training history
  • Work history and employment status
  • Transportation availability
  • Medical history
  • Strengths and limitations
