Job Training and Placement Referral

Job Training and Placement Referral is a service provided to people with disabilities through MOPD's network of employment Program Partners. 

Job seekers with disabilities are referred by MOPD's Employment Services staff to community-based organizations, WIPA Program Partners, and SSA Employment Network agencies for job training and placement assistance including:

  • Resume writing
  • Job readiness training and preparation
  • Employer connection for job openings
  • One-on-one counseling to assess skills, identify barriers to training and employment, and advise on issues related to health care and state/federal benefits.

For more information, please call the Mayor's Office for People with Disabilities (MOPD) Employment Services Unit at 312.746.5743, 311 or mopdesuwipa@cityofchicago.org.
