In the highly competitive job market, finding a good position can sometimes be overwhelming. And, if you happen to have a disability, the task feels even more daunting. However, the fact is, nearly 20% of the US labor force consists of individuals with disabilities. This shows that there are many employers out there who can see a person’s real talent, beyond his/her disabilities. Clearly, there are employers who understand the positivity, compassion, and dedication that a differently-abled person can bring to a business.
There is much guidance, support, and training from government resources to help a disabled person find employment. While government-backed schemes are generating jobs for people with disabilities, there are also awareness-raising initiatives being conducted to break stereotypes and to ensure that everyone is given an equal chance to work regardless of his/her disability.
