New Link: Resume Builder for People with Disabilities

Our research has shown that people living with disabilities face numerous challenges in securing employment. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 17.9% of people with a disability are employed. To help level the playing field our team has created a comprehensive step-by-step guide that can help people with disabilities create an impactful resume that can highlight their skills and value to potential employers. This guide includes important insight such as laws that protect their rights, workplace discrimination, and harassment to ensure they receive a fair chance at achieving their career goal.

You can view our guide here:

We believe that landing a job should be fair and building the perfect resume should be simple. We can create awareness about tools and resources that can help people living with disabilities take control of their careers.

Thank you,
