Getting a job

Most job placements are the result of personal contacts and networking, regardless of disability. To help someone find a job, encourage him or her to tap into that social capital — the relationships and connections he or she has with others in the community. Then, depending on the scenario, you might suggest various other strategies and tactics to secure work. For example, vocational rehabilitation can be a rich source of job counseling, training and placement.
