Job Matching Placements and Incentives
The JMPI component matches client skills and interests with employment opportunities and employer needs. Clients using this component need work experience or on-the-job training placement.
Clients get support in matching their skills, capabilities, interests, and experience with the requirements of the employer and the position. Clients can also receive placement into employment and/or on-the-job training opportunities. These placements include “job test and hire”, work experience, and community volunteer positions. Basic WHMIS and other workplace safety information and training are also available.
Key suitability indicators in this case are those related to market perceptions. These include a lack of relevant work experience, work experience outside Canada, and language barriers.
