What’s unique about Expandability and the impact it makes? It’s definitely NOT “…a one size fits all…” program!

How we help our clients

We work one on one with our clients, supporting them with coaching, job preparation and placement in the public sector. Before they arrive at Expandability, many have been unemployed because of intellectual/developmental challenges, lack of knowledge of the hiring process and sometimes even fear. Our coaches support them by getting to know them very well – developing in-depth personal profiles that highlight their strengths, talents and interests. We help them to write compelling cover letters, create strong resumes and even conduct mock interviews prior to their seeking employment or paid internships. Next, our business developer contacts local employers per the clients’ abilities and interests. And even after they have been hired, our coaches help with on-board training and check in with them regularly. So, from start to finish, we support our clients in achieving their goals!

And a note to employers: Expandability can help you by

  • Providing access to a pool of highly motivated individuals,
  • Promoting an inclusive workplace,
  • Meeting your recruitment needs by providing a pipeline of potential candidates,
  • Allowing your existing staff to diversify their workload and skills,
  • Increasing employee productivity and retention,
  • Extending your company’s visibility with a positive public image.

By the way did you know that 91% of the reasonable accommodations are one time or no cost at all.

We think the best way to tell you what Expandability and Goodwill Silicon Valley can do for you, whether you are a potential client or employer, is to hear directly from past and current clients! Here’s what they have to say:

I regard the graduates from the Expandability program to be our secret weapon for gifted talent for our business. Time and time again they show their unique ability to sort through thousands of records accurately and be singularly focused in helping us modernize our business.

As an employer, it can be a struggle to retain staff in roles that are very repetative. The graduates from the Expandability program not only meet that need for us, they go beyond that and have helped to digitize our business.
