Employment for People with Disabilities: Tips

Disability Scoop offers a great interview with Doreen Rosimos of IncomeLink, LLC, which helps find employment for people with disabilities. She says, "It’s tough to find a job right now for everybody, but I do believe it’s possible....Right now going to a small employer -- the corner market, the local bakery, the businesses with five to six people -- is the best place to get part-time employment, especially if you can go in and talk to the people there. Maybe they need someone just two hours a day."

She adds, "If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life. When I help people find jobs, I don’t help them find a job. I help them find a place to be, where they can grow as a person and experience some satisfaction in their life, not just put band-aids in a box."
