You can help your students achieve gainful employment.


"In support of the South Carolina Employment First Initiative, the South Carolina Department of Education promotes employment outcomes in integrated work settings where people with disabilities interact to the same extent as those without disabilities in comparable positions with earnings at or above minimum wage. Ultimately, competitive and integrated employment should be the goal for all South Carolina students, including those with disabilities." 

- Rebecca C. Davis

Director of Office of Special Education Services, South Carolina Department of Education

By sharing their employment stories, your student is empowering others to know that they can do the same and to start their journey toward getting a job.

 
 

By sharing your story of employment, you are empowering others to know they can also start their journey toward getting a job.

See below for two simple steps to help guide your student in the process of sharing their story of employment with us.

 
 
 Step 1 to share your story
 
 

Have your student fill out the official Hire Me SC "Spotlight Submission" form to give our team permission to spread their important message.

Click here to fill out the form with your student and get started!

 
 
 Step 2 to share your story
 

Choose one of two #HireMeSC sign templates. The first option will allow your student to cut along the dotted lines and the second will allow your student to print and hold up as-is. 

Take a picture of your student holding their sign of choice and have them post their image using the hashtag #HireMeSC to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. Don't forget to have them write about their successes with or aspirations for employment in the copy!
