DEFINITION: This is para-professional work in providing employment and skills development opportunities to inmates in a state correctional facility.

An employee in this job performs limited technical duties assisting the facility’s Corrections Employment and Vocational Coordinator.

Work includes reviewing reports and recommendations prepared by psychological, educational, medical, caseworkers, and other facility personnel to determine inmates' suitability for employment; interacting with treatment staff to assess the physical and psychological conditions of inmates and the impact on their job assignments; and providing information regarding occupational opportunities and job performance to members of the facility's Support Team and Initial Reception Committee.
