Work Readiness Resources Now Available for Participants and Case Workers
The Online Work Readiness Assessment (OWRA) is a free, web-based tool that offers an innovative approach to assess work readiness. OWRA helps caseworkers facilitate an in-depth assessment which creates a plan for participants that summarizes their strengths and barriers and makes recommendations on placement into work activities and work supports. Included with OWRA is a suite of Work Readiness Resources, a valuable guide for both participants and case managers. For participants, three building block levels are available to provide tips on basics like resume writing and job interviewing to exploring more complex concepts like the local labor market and developing a personal education plan. For case workers, the resources offer an interactive hub of tips and information to help participants become more self-sufficient, be able to provide more options for education and training to participants, and explore labor market and career development resources. To allow for easier access to these critical resources, the Office of Family Assistance (OFA) has recently published these guides on the OWRA Peer TA website under the Resources tab.
