After each client completes the clinical intake process, Carly schedules an interview to determine education and career goals. After some time in the IOP process, clients are cleared for job search by their case manager and join Carly's group to discuss and actively engage in job search. Carly guides each client through the resume writing process and tracks the job application and interview process. Because clients often struggle with fear and anxiety in the job search process, Carly often accompanies clients to a job interview and counsels them through their fears. Carly quickly earns respect and cooperation from clients and their families. Carly helps them move their lives forward.
