If a job seeker needs help to find a job there are state and local resources that can help with the job search. State human service and job support agencies such as the state vocational rehabilitation agency or the state intellectual or developmental disability agency can help coordinate services, provide funding, and in some cases provide direct job support. Community rehabilitation providers are community organizations that provide job support services. You can use them with funding from a state agency or by paying privately for supports. One stop career centers are local or regional centers that provide job supports and information to any job seeker, with or without a disability.

There are many approaches to finding a job, and you may choose to find your own help from family or by hiring someone to help you.
