We’ve made it to Day #5 of our 6-days of disability resources in honor of Disability Employment Awareness Month. Today’s resources is probably one of the most commonly used disability-related resources in the area of job accommodation. We use this resource quite frequently, but I still find areas on this website I haven’t yet explored. Let’s take a look!
Resource #5: Job Accommodation Network (JAN) on Job Search!
The Job Accommodation Network or JAN is our first stop when looking for client-related job accommodation information. Today, however, we’re going to focus on what JAN has for you on job search!
Within the JAN website is a 4-Step process for job seekers with disabilities on job search entitled:
Finding a Job that is Right for You: A Practical Approach to Looking for a Job as a Person with a Disability
Each step, which is listed below, includes detailed information, resources and helpful links. It’s a great starting place for you and your clients!
- Step 1: What kind of job is right for you?
- Step 2: Who can help you to find the right job?
