April 22, 2015 in Community News


Finding a job can be challenging, especially if you are just starting your career or have been out of work for a while. Fortunately, there are many programs and services available that connect people with disabilities to employment services that offer job training and help finding employment. Be sure to check out Disability.Blog’s employment related posts to learn about topics such as working from home and read the stories of people with disabilities who have made great strides in the workplace. And remember, it’s your ability, not your disability, that matters.

Disability.gov’s Employment section offers a broad range of resources about finding a job. In addition, we have developed this guide to connect you with programs, services, government agencies and organizations that can help you find information about career planning and job trainingemployment laws and regulations and job accommodations and supports.
