Most people want to work. But, if you have a disability, it can be challenging to find a job. This blog post will go over some tips for helping disabled adults get jobs.
What should I know about this?
Check out the resources available to you.
Many organizations can help disabled adults find jobs. Start by checking out your local government’s website or department of labor. There, you should see a list of specific resources for your area. In addition, there are also national organizations such as Disability Resource Network and National Collaborative on Workforce and Disability for Youth (NCWD/Youth). These organizations have databases of job openings specifically for disabled adults. You can also check with companies that hire disabled workers, like sheltered workshops or Goodwill Industries.
Get involved in your community.
One way to show employers that you’re motivated and capable is to get involved in your community. This can include volunteering, joining a club or organization, or even just attending events in your area. The more you do, the more employers will see that you’re active and engaged. Plus, it never hurts to have connections in your community!
It can be challenging when you’re looking for a job and don’t have any luck. But it’s important to stay optimistic throughout the process. No one wants to hire someone who is negative and down all the time. So smile, be friendly, and always put your best foot forward. Chances are things will start to look up soon enough!
