An overview of career counseling is provided, as well as instructions on how workers in need of career counseling can receive the service via video.


Career Counseling, Information and Referral Video Presentation for Subminimum Wage Earners

This video is provided for individuals earning subminimum wage who require career counseling, information and referral services in order for their employers to remain compliant with WIOA requirements during the interim between DORS group career counseling sessions. Individuals are advised to watch this video with other interested parties, such as parents, legal guardians, and/or Social Security representative payees. Before watching the video, individuals will answer several questions so that DORS can send a Proof of Service letter to the individual.  The individual can either give that letter to his or her employer or give DORS permission to send the letter to the employer to document that career counseling, information, and referral services were received.
