Resources - Disability Careers Guides

Embracing Your Strengths

When it comes to disability it’s very easy to think about all the things you cannot do, or that you can no longer do. However, it is time to think about what you can do and what skills, strengths and competencies you do have. We all develop skills as a result of our experiences and this is also true if you have to manage a disability on a day to day basis in a world that isn’t always geared up for it. These are skills that employers are potentially looking for.

In this ebook we will be exploring the additional strengths you have gained through managing a disability and how you can make your disability a ‘plus’ when applying to jobs.
