The NJ-DVRS RTAC Project Committee Members developed and implemented a unique screening process which enabled NJ-DVRS counselors within the pilot’s project offices to skillfully identify consumers for jobs in New Jersey’s lucrative Financial Services Sector. RTAC Project Team members worked diligently to enhance collaborative efforts between NJ-DVRS and the New Jersey Financial Services Talent Network (FSTN). The NJ-DVRS and FSTN partnership provided opportunities for NJ-DVRS consumers with the skills and interest to explore jobs in financial services.  NJ-DVRS has a database of job ready consumers to work in the New Jersey Financial Services Industry who were identified, screened and prepared as part of the NJ-RTAC Project. Development activities included:

- Cross Training
- Business Summit
- Duplication Cross Training
- Continuous Job Development
- Continuous training referrals

This webinar is part of a series where members of the NIDILRR-funded RTAC project of VR Program Management present the lessons they've learned through their management initiative. The RTAC is a collaborative initiative to identify, test, and disseminate management practices to build a performance management model tailored to the vocational rehabilitation system.
