REDEFINE YOUR DISABILITY

Be the person, not the disability.

During a job interview, it’s up to you to help employers focus on you as a person, and not on your disability. Employers want to know you can do the job. So you need to be prepared to tell them what you have to offer.

This interactive tool will help you start thinking about the talents and job skills you can bring to the workforce.



Step 1
Type in the name of your disability [e.g., blind, paraplegia, etc.], then click the "submit" button.

 


Step 2

  • Select a job skill or trait from the list provided, then click "next".
  • Continue until a word is assigned to every letter in the name of your disability.
  • If you want to change a word you've chosen, click "previous" to go back.
