Smart Resumes and Applications for People with Disabilities

A resume must be impressive. But for people with disabilities, there’s always an extra concern. At what stage of the process should the disability be mentioned—in the resume? On an application? Is it better to wait until a face-to-face interview? While there’s no easy answer, this video helps job seekers sift through the many challenges and decisions of completing resumes, cover letters, references, and applications. Illustrating the differences between chronological, functional, and combination resumes, as well as the specific uses of a targeted resume, the program explains why a candidate with a disability might choose one type or another and explores ways to submit an application package that is positive, professional, and proactive. A Cambridge Educational/MotionMasters Co-Production. A part of the series Disabilities at Work: Successful Job Hunting for People with Disabilities. (23 minutes)
