How AbilityLinks Works
AbilityLinks is a nationwide, web-based community where job seekers with disabilities and inclusive employers meet and gain access to valuable networking opportunities.
How AbilityLinks Works
If you’re a person with disability, you are protected by equal opportunity employment law and subject to affirmative action by federal contractors. You can take advantage of your protected status by using AbilityLinks to post your resume, apply for jobs and network with inclusive employers.
If you’re an inclusive business seeking to identify qualified candidates with disabilities, you can use AbilityLinks to post jobs, search resumes and review job applications submitted through AbilityLinks.org. Posting jobs and searching resumes is free.
Any job seeker who chooses to voluntarily disclose having a disability may use AbilityLinks. A referral or funding source is not required and no information about disability type is asked.
AbilityLinks is more than a website. Via live chat, phone and email, experienced and knowledgeable Information and Referral Counselors, that happen to have a disability, offer free support:
Offer job search advice and consultation
Alert employers and job seekers to matches
Provide information about job accommodations, tax credits and disability benefits
Make referrals to local programs that provide job placement and disability recruitment services
