How can I find work as someone with a disability?

Look for Work
Answer

More and more employers are learning to look for workers with the skills to do a job, rather than focusing on an unrelated disability.

Check out these resources to help you find work opportunities that fit for your strengths and interests.

Apply for positions that match your skills and experience. Point out all of the good reasons for hiring someone with a disability, like:

  • the benefits of diversity—a mix of employees can understand and meet the needs of a wider range of customers.
  • problem-solving skills—you’ve had lots of experience solving challenges.
