Whether you are an employment specialist, job developer, guidance counselor, or a person with disability, you will find our Disabilities Job Search Store a handy resource.
Before sending out resumes, filling in applications, and getting an interview there is: The Job Search. The current high unemployment rates make this part of the employment process more critical than it has been in many years. For people with disabilities, job search strategies are essential. Any individual or employment specialist conducting a disability job search not only has to play the game of musical chairs by trying to get one of only a few of the available chairs but, they must also make sure the chair they get will accommodate the skills and requirements of the candidate. Disabilities job opportunities, specifically prospective employers seeking a person with a disability are, unfortunately, very limited. Therefore, when engaging in a job search the person with a disability can search for a job using many of the same venues as anyone else. These include utilizing the internet, personal contacts and other networking venues, agencies, classified ads and direct application, which are all good, valid tools. However, there are other tactics that a person with disability or employment specialist can utilize to help give them and edge in their job search.
Our Disability Job Search Store has many resources created and developed to give the extra edge you need to secure the job opportunity you are searching for.
