The Employment Placement Department at Lapeer Team Work partners with Michigan Rehabilitation Services (MRS) to achieve quality outcomes and independence for persons with barriers to employment.

  • Job Readiness Training:  We focus on barriers to employment and discuss the coping mechanisms and tools available to help overcome those barriers.

  • Best Impression Classes:  Participants learn how to dress for interviews, interviewing etiquette, and tips on personal hygiene.

  • Job Seeking Training:  Participants obtain the tools needed to look for a job and how to find gainful employment.  Learn how to complete job applications, write a resume and cover letter, and discuss various interviewing techniques, personal presentation styles, and how to prepare follow up thank you letters.

  • Work Experience/Evaluation: This program is typically 2 weeks. We asses skills, abilities and barriers to employment. This will help determine if an individual is ready for competitive employment. Individuals are assessed at various sites depending on the individuals goals.

Ashley Kessler


Ashley Kessler, from  Lapeer Team Works, was instrumental in my finding and obtaining employment at StoneGate Health Campus in Lapeer. She worked tireless, daily, in applying to numerous websites for various positions each week until I was called for an interview.

      Ashley even made the extra steps of taking me  and accompanying me on a couple of interviews. I have her to thank for and I ever I need help about, would love to have her on my side again. She's even picked me up from my new place of employment to take me home and find out how work was going. She's the best!!
