    Job Hunting and Interview Tips for people with Disabilities (Webinar)

    Job Hunting and Interview Tips for people with Disabilities (Webinar)

    We hosted a webinar entitled "Job Hunting and Interview Tips for people with Disabilities" this month in honor of Disability Employment Awareness Month, and it was a big hit. We covered a variety of topics from application and interview tips to where and how to report discrimination, and answered a wonderfully well-rounded set of questions from our live attendees. 

    Our speaker presented a business case for hiring people with disabilities. She noted several lesser-known but well-documented benefits to hiring people with disabilities -- many of which will directly affect an employer's bottom line and profitability in delightfully positive ways. 

    We invite you to watch the recorded webinar online (requires registration) and download the corresponding PowerPoint presentation. We also shared a list of colleges that have special programs for students with intellectual and learning disabilities.

    Are you a person with a disability who's currently looking for employment? If so, what have been your biggest hurdles? Do you have experience with helping people with disabilities prepare and/or obtain employment?

    We'd love to hear about your experiences, and any advice you have for people who are looking for work or companies that are considering a greater diversity in their workplace. Please comment below!

    "We would tell her what each of the choices were on the ProxTalker.  When Emily would reach out to touch a tag, we provided a prompt to help her push the tag down to create the voice output.  We saw just after a few trials that Emily was making the connection.  She was reaching out on her own to touch the tags to tell us what she wanted.  She would choose tags that were both in the left and right positions, especially if it was for pretzels.  We would rotate the tags out and bring in new choices every 4-5 trials, so that she could learn more tags.  Emily is happy when she has her time throughout the day to use her device.

    Communication is becoming meaningful for her."
