What is a
“Job Coach” / “Life Coach”?

Do you remember how amazing it felt to land your first job? Or the satisfaction of getting a new job that was more rewarding and meaningful? A paycheck does so much more for a person than adding numbers to their bank account. It can give a person a sense of self-value and achievement.

As a “Job Coach” and “Life Coach” in ETTA’s Employment Services department, you will play a key role in paving the way for your client (an adult with intellectual and developmental disabilities) to accomplish their employment goals and succeed in the workplace. In other words, your job is to help them discover their job. You will never forget the look on their face when they are told the good news – “You’re hired!”

  • You will be matched with one of our clients (an adult with intellectual and developmental disabilities, such as autism).
  • The two of you will work together (one-on-one | 1:1), searching for the right job.
  • Your time together will be at a variety of different locations, whether at a Job Center, Community Library, College Campus … or job searching at their residence, coffeehouse, or even a park on their laptop computer. You two will also visit different storefronts and other businesses in in the local community, checking out interesting job openings and meeting hiring managers.
  • One of the first and most important activities you will do when starting to work with your client is to simply get to know each other and build a friendly, comfortable, and trusting relationship. A good “Job Coach” and “Life Coach” will find a way to motivate their client to open up about their unexplored employment goals and make them feel comfortable going after ANY job without preconceived limitations. The goal is not to pursue all jobs – but the right job that recognizes their talents, grows their skills, and is meaningful for them.
  • As your client’s “Job Coach” / “Life Coach,” you will teach, mentor, and guide them as you navigate the job market. This will involve: Creating or editing their resume with them, teaching them how to write a good cover letter, showing them where to find jobs online and offline, etc. You will discuss tips for having a successful job interview and have fun practicing interviewing techniques prior to the exciting appointment.
  • When your client gets hired – or if they are already employed when you are first matched up by ETTA, instead of job hunting, you will be on the jobsite with them to ensure they have a successful experience.
  • Your days will not be entirely filled with job-related tasks. You will make plenty of time to enjoy fun and entertaining activities, such as outdoor recreation, your client’s hobbies, social activities, exploring the local community, special events, and more!
  • Ultimately, you will play a vital role in guiding and inspiring your client toward achieving professional and personal goals and growing more independent.

As a member of the ETTA team, you will be truly appreciated as you help make someone’s world a better place. ETTA staff supports, guides, mentors, and inspires our clients to achieve their goals and live happier, healthier, and more fulfilling lives each and every day!
