Effective Job Search for People with Disabilities

For anyone who thinks “disabled” means “unemployable,” this video quickly dispels that myth and shows how to begin the job-hunting process by identifying skills, strengths, and interests. Viewers are provided with a basic explanation of the Americans with Disabilities Act and its guarantees of equal opportunity, as well as an overview of the kinds of companies and organizations that often take the lead in hiring disabled applicants. Other major topics include creating a self-assessment or profile of talents and abilities, setting up informational interviews, developing online and personal networks, and examining the possibilities of self-employment. A Cambridge Educational/MotionMasters Co-Production. A part of the series Disabilities at Work: Successful Job Hunting for People with Disabilities. (27 minutes)
