NTI describes its missions as: "NTI staff bring together employers who have agreed to "go virtual," advanced communications technology, and vocational rehabilitation agencies to enable individuals with disabilities to train for and work online in environments that are more easily accessible to them".
Most NTI jobs currently offered are for customer service representatives, tech support agents and medical transcriptionists. Hiring organizations range from the IRS to AAA's auto club. They are the prime contractor for the IRS and the Department of Veterans Affairs. They also act as subcontractors for Medicare and Medicaid, the Department of Labor and the INS. They've also matched disabled home workers with private companies, including Ticket Master, Home Shopping Network, Alamo Rent A Car, and other well-recognized corporations.
NTI offers training to qualified job applicants, the fees for which are paid for by vocational rehab counseling agencies. It also provides a table of states where NTI is an approved vendor for vocational rehab agencies. Currently, this includes about 30 US states.
You must eventually submit a written certification of your disability before you can be offered a job via NTI. Either a physician or a Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) office in your state must provide a letter verifying that you have a chronic medical condition or disability.
