How to find a job if you have a disability

People with disabilities often find it more difficult to find employment due to discrimination, lack of support and accommodations, or employers that do not understand the value of their skills.  There are many resources available for people with disabilities including grants, education programs, and independent living centers. 

Here’s how you can get started:

1) Connect with a local Independent Living center

2) Search for jobs in your area

3) Apply for a government-funded job training program

4) Ask family members or friends if they know anyone who might be able to help

5) Don’t forget about internships! They’re a great way to gain experience while building your resume
