Subject: The Career Index Plus, in partnership with The Workforce Innovation Technical Assistance Center
In today’s rapidly changing economy, helping VR consumers make a good career decision is more challenging and important than ever. A fundamental key to success is access to relevant, understandable information. VR counselors need a resource that can help an individual gain or advance in employment consistent with his or her strengths, resources, concerns, abilities, capabilities, interests, and informed choice.
The Career Index Plus is that resource.
The Career Index Plus, in partnership with The Workforce Innovation Technical Assistance Center (WINTAC), recently offered a four-part training series. This training series, now available on WINTAC.org, is a free resource that all State Vocational Rehabilitation Agencies (SVRAs) can use during the assessment, career exploration, planning, and counseling processes.
The Career Index Plus is a comprehensive, online career information system that includes data from all 50 state Labor Market Information divisions, plus the Bureau of Labor Statistics, O*NET OnLine, Career InfoNet, the U.S. Department of Labor, Indeed®, and more. Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Counselors can also invite clients to use The Career Index Plus, track progress, and print reports.

Remember your user name and password to link to subsequent trainings, as you’ll only have to register once. The available Career Index Plus trainings include the following:
