Job Search

Providing students with disabilities the tools and information needed to find employment opportunities

This section provides information about the process of becoming employed beginning with how to search for a job and closing with how to keep a job. Working is a primary feature of adult life. In fact, the average adult spends approximately 90,000 hours at work (Thompson, 2016). Students with disabilities are eager to find work in order to be independent and find satisfaction in doing a job well. Job searching and actually starting a job is the focal point of many years of preparation and planning. The pages in this section will provide helpful information, tools and resources that can support students with disabilities in their quest for employment.
