Learn about as many employers in your area as possible so that you can educate job seekers about the full range of positions available.  Emphasize that the goal is to find a good job fit that contributes to the person’s overall wellness and recovery, rather than just any job that could be short lived or may exacerbate symptoms.  Within a multi-state learning collaborative, programs in rural communities were as successful as those in urban areas.  One employment specialist in a very rural area was extremely successful because she visited every employer in her county, whether they had one or 20 employees.
