What can YOU do?

Work is fundamental to our lives. It means so much more than a paycheck — it offers purpose and the opportunity to lead an independent, self-directed life for all people, including people with disabilities.

People with disabilities have the skills to pursue meaningful careers and play an important role in America’s educational and economic success. In fact, experience with disability can offer a competitive edge when it comes to work. If you are a person with a disability, only you can define your own limitations. High expectations are essential to success. Organizations exist that can help you seek employment, identify the tools you need to be productive on the job, and understand your right to be evaluated on your ability, not disability. Because after all, at work it’s what people can do that matters.

Tell us what YOU can do!
If you are a person with a disability, we’d like to hear from you.

Please take a moment to share information about your job skills and talents. Your story will increase employers’ awareness of the talents and skills that people with disabilities contribute to the workplace and help challenge misconceptions about disability and employment.

I am a people person having been a travel escort and trip planner. I can speak basic Italian, Spanish and Greek and I tutor English as a second language. My disability is electric sensitivity, having been a legal secretary sitting next to a copy machine, fax machine, hands on typewriter, foot on pedal, headset on head. I think of work as a place to report, belong and find purpose.

I am a recent graduate of William Paterson Unversity with a bachelor's degree in Sociology with a minor in psychology, acquired with high grades, after 13 long years of struggling with my learning disabilities which I did not allow to deter me from reaching my goal. Now "that I'm here" so to speak, I'm eager to start a job and will be so appreciative of an opportunity. Thanks.
