Check with your state unemployment office. They should have assistance for you to find jobs compatible with your skills, and classes you can take to upgrade skills or go in a new direction. In Texas it is Texas Workforce.

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month!

It's National Disability Employment Awareness Month, which means it's a good time to refresh ourselves about the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The ADA was enacted in 1990 to protect anyone who has a disability from discrimination. One of the protections in the ADA is it's illegal to treating other employees (without disabilities) more favorably.

A lot of states have an agency that trains and helps disabled people find jobs. My granddaughter is special needs and Georgia Department of Rehabilitation trained her and helped her find a job.

Advice please. I have a brain injury

Hi Jobcase. I am looking for a job for the first time in 5+ years. Since the last time i was looking for a job, I was in an accident that left me with a brain injury.

I am now looking for a new job, and i am nervous because my injury left me with some limitations. Most times I can overcome them with some reasonable additional accommodations from my employer. I work hard and always give it my all.

How do I go about this with my next employer? Any advice or support is welcomed.

Thank you- Jonah

Hey @Marco Olivanti , welcome to the jobcase community! I noticed on your profile that you are specifically interested in job coach/training employment opportunities in Minnesota.

You should reach out to the Minnesota Employment and Economic Development office in your area. The career navigators can help you prepare to land related immediate hiring opportunities with the Department of State Services of the Blind and other similar non-profit/for profit agencies and companies that employ qualified candidates in these career areas.

Use the link above for instant access to the agency website and use the contact information to connect with a career navigator today!

Thanks
