I suffer from a disability and am looking for work. What can I do to increase my chances of being hired?
The answer will depend on the type of disability you have and on what kind of work you’re looking for. If you have experience in several fields or are willing to get training to boost your chances of getting hired, it is a good idea to pivot to a field that is a good match for your disability.
Many countries around the world also have programs meant to help people with disabilities connect with employers. Sometimes those services are done by NGOs, and sometimes they are funded by the government. A good example of this is the Workforce Australia program, which is delivered by employment service providers like atWork Australia.
See if such programs are available in your region. Not only can a program like this provide you with the support you need to increase your value in the job marketplace, but it is also a good way to connect with employers who have hired people with similar disabilities before.
