AbilityLinks is a web-based community where job seekers with disabilities, inclusive employers and service providers meet and gain access to valuable networking opportunities.
Networking is accomplished through AbilityLinks.org, a free nationwide job opportunity website for persons with disabilities and inclusive employers, similar to niche web sites set up to serve minorities, women and ethnic groups protected by equal opportunity employment laws.
By posting a resume on AbilityLinks, job seekers leverage their disability status to connect with businesses that use AbilityLinks to increase their disability diversity and expand their applicant pool.
