DisabilitiesJuly 15, 2010
I just saw an old employer of mine advertising an organization that matches disabled persons with jobs. It made me think, why aren’t there more jobs for people with disabilities? I mean, how hard is it? It could be as simple as adding a note to your job posting that your building is accessible. You need to be willing to conduct phone and/or video interviews for people with limited mobility. You could say point blank that you are willing to work with people with disabilities. It’s always going to depend on the impediment involved. You might need to purchase some speciailized equipment. You might need to look at specialized training. You’ll probably need to have an orientation session with your existing staff. But it can be done! If I was in any kind of hiring position, that’s what I’d be doing.
