WORKS FOR ME

Support On People With Disabilities

If you've ever searched for "jobs for people with disabilities," you're at the right place.

Since 2000, Works for Me – PA has been the go-to career website specially dedicated to providing employment for people living with disabilities.

Post your anonymous resume and search through jobs for free on this site if you’re a person living with a disability. For employers looking for talents, we have job seekers ready to add value to your establishment here.

By browsing through resumes and posting job opportunities, you can diversify your workforce and demonstrate open-door policies, affirmative action, and OFCCP compliance. As the largest job bank for thousands of job seekers with disabilities, we have qualified candidates ranging from entry-level to Ph.D.

People living with disabilities also want to pursue their own careers. But the rate of unemployment is higher than average, and most times, some become discouraged and quit searching for work. On the other hand, businesses that value a diversified workforce often find it hard to practice disability inclusion. The reason is, they find it challenging to get better access to people living with disabilities with the right skills.

That’s why we created Works for me – PA, to ensure people living with disabilities can pursue their careers. We help connect candidates with disabilities to employers that incorporate disability inclusion.

We are steadily posting jobs of all types to ensure nobody is left out. And we’ve seen the result as over a thousand job seekers have gained employment through our site since its inception.

Applicants’ background, experience, and skills range from entry-level to managerial, professional, technical, and administrative. So there’s no shortage of qualified candidates on our site.
