MacDonald Training Center‘s Employment Services connects job seekers with disabilities to businesses in the community that have a need for their unique skills, talents and abilities.

MTC is a qualified direct service provider with the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) under the Department of Education for Employment Services.

Why MTC Works?

Businesses that are inclusive  – in recruitment, retention and advancement – benefit from a wider pool of talent, skills and creative business solutions.  Additionally, neurodiverse work environments that are flexible and open to the talents of all qualified individuals, including those with disabilities, actually promote workplace success for everyone.

As the premier provider of disability neutral employment placement services for people with disabilities in Hillsborough County, MTC provides employment placement services to adults with many diverse physical or cognitive disabilities.

MTC’s 40+ years of connections to the business community includes decades of partnerships with Human Resource Specialists through our various associations, including a Business Advisory Council and other advisory relationships.

We are particularly aware of and sensitive to the need for these employment placement supports to assist deaf and neurodiverse young adults transitioning from school or college into the community.   Our long standing relationships with the Florida Department of Education through Hillsborough County Schools  and collaboration with the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, is an ongoing source of referrals for placements. We’ve received partnership status with Florida’s  Unique Abilities Partner Program.

MTC is an active member of the Tampa Chamber of Commerce, Tampa Downtown Partnership and the Westshore Alliance as a means of soliciting job placements. Our roster of 60+ active employers ranges from Bank of America to the Seminole Hard Rock Café.
