Webinar 2/26: Transitioning into the Workplace After Spinal Cord Injury

February 13, 2019

Register for the webinar on Tuesday, February 26 at 12 pm ET.

The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation Paralysis Resource Center (PRC) host a webinar on how to transition back into the workplace after sustaining a spinal cord injury.

Work not only provides income, health insurance, and other benefits, but is also beneficial to an individual’s overall well-being. The hour-long webinar will address common concerns of transitioning back into the workforce, such as where to find support, training, and vocational rehabilitation services to help obtain and keep a job while living with a spinal cord injury.

By the end of the session, users will feel confident in identifying the five steps of employment services available during a job search, choosing the employment network or service to fit their needs, mapping a strategy for the interview process, developing a list of tools for a job search, and setting goals for returning to the workforce.

Funding for this community education project was provided through a cooperative agreement with ACL.
