POST JOB OPENINGS USING JOB BOARDS YOU CREATE

Students will have fun checking out the job postings. Once they apply for a job, you can schedule an interview with them. If you give them the job, they start getting deposits to their online banking account, and it goes on from there. Savings goals, budgeting, finding an apartment, applying for a lease, paying bills, let your creativeness lead the way.

See example Job Boards below for:

  • Career Readiness Coordinator
  • School Based Enterprise (SBE) Worker
  • Independent Living Skills Learner
  • Career Exploration Worker

Within your Replicated Reality account, you can add resources for your students to access like photos, PDF files, URL links - like google drive links, or website links, Microsoft documents like Word or Power Point, the sky's the limit! You can even make job boards for your Project Discovery kits and Achieve Life Skills titles if you have this curriculum.

“It has been an honor, and great privilege to see the progress and participation from schools in Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota and Wisconsin participating in TAI’s national beta test for Replicated Reality. I’d have to say that I’m especially proud of Park Rapids, MN who has not only been a very active beta test site, but also a contributor to the bones of Replicated Reality. One trimester in, Park Rapids lead teacher Matt Brandt sends an email to TAI which is eventually forwarded on to me.”

Heidi Johnson, Transition Consultant and Sales Rep for Replicated Reality

“We just started a new trimester here, so I ended all jobs for students and they will be re-applying for jobs again next week. I love the summary report as it will have everything on one sheet for all students. The kids are loving this program and our Superintendent saw the program for the first time and was blown away with it and wondering how we can get this into other classrooms. It has made our students better. Thanks again for selecting us for this process.”
