A Job Club for People with Disabilities

Career development and employment for people with disabilities is something near and dear to me.

On a professional level, I have a Master’s degree in International Management with a focus in Human Resource Development and Training and over 20 years experience working with career development, job development and/or training work for people with disabilities.

On a personal level, I’ve been fired from jobs because I couldn’t hear. I have struggled through countless interviews when my C-PTSD or TBI interfered with my interview and I’d lose my opportunity. I’ve also fallen through the cracks when Things Happened and I’ve clawed my way out and re-built myself.

I get it. I get the whole thing.

I’ve walked this walk in finding (and keeping) a job when you have a disability, how to handle disclosure, accommodation, how to figure out what is advantageous about my disabilities.

I want to create space for us to talk about these things and where we can help each other with job-search and job-related problems and issues, confidentially.

Please join. It’s on Facebook and the link is here 

It’s a closed group, which means that what you post there will not be visible to anyone except whomever is in the group. People not in the group will be able to see you are a member of it, but that’s all.

You will be asked a few questions – such as,  “do you identify as a person with a disability?” – to make sure that the group is kept for us with disabilities AND to make sure everyone is joining for employment-related reasons!

Hope to see you there.

  1. Hello again – I previously commented on your other blog “Why Hire Someone With A Disability.” I am, however against all social media for a variety of reasons – I’m a ghost when it comes to social media and the only thing individuals can look me up is my LinkedIn account. Im in the Computer/Network Security Industry lets just say.

    Have you thought of creating a “Meetup”? I’d be more comfortable with that or something like “Google Hangouts” although I don’t know the stipulations/requirements for the latter.

    Best,
    Marshal

    P.S. – My email I use on here is just one of many – I mean who uses Yahoo anymore after the biggest breach of history – THIS GUY. I created one immediately after the news for a multitude of reasons ;).
