Resources For Disabled Jobseekers

We have all heard the saying ignorance is bliss. The reality is far from it. For those who are faced with physical and cognitive disabilities, the job search process can be down right cruel. That is because of the lack of understanding that the majority of people who aren't disabled have for what it means to be disabled or how to deal with it entirely. A second problem that is underlying the ignorance is fear. So many are terrified by even the mention of the word disabled. Many can't imagine what they would do if they were disabled, to the point where they remark that "life for me would be over if something happens and I end up in a wheelchair." Let's be honest with ourselves. The majority of us who are not disabled can agree that when it comes to this issue, we do not have a very good comprehension of the struggles and stigma that are unfairly placed on those among us who have to live with a disability. So much more need to be done in our country to close this gap.

Physical and cognitive disabilities shouldn’t stop you from a successful job search. Whether you're dealing with a vision or hearing impairment, or some other physical or cognitive limitation; arthritis, perhaps, or PTSD, disability can add special challenges to finding a job. To help those with a disability search for a job, here is a selection of Information, resources and websites.

I feel lucky to be a truck driver, no worries about Coronavirus out on the road. It's people that make me real nervous in times like these. I remember when I lived through Katrina and all the looting and craziness. Does anyone think it will get that way again? I sure hope not!
