Vocational Evaluation

Goodwill’s vocational evaluation helps individuals identify vocational strengths and weaknesses through test materials and/or hands-on work.

A trained vocational evaluator aids individuals in developing an assessment plan. The plan is based on interviews, vocational tests, review of past jobs, simulated work activities, and medical or psychological reports.

The data is then used by the evaluator, individual, and referral source to identify appropriate career options. The evaluator recommends courses of action to help individuals achieve their vocational goals.

Since Goodwill has a mobile evaluation team, vocational assessments can be arranged at various locations within Goodwill’s service area.
