For people with disabilities, a lot of life situations can be tough, amongst them the search for employment. In a fiercely competitive jobs market, it takes a very strong candidate to persuade an employer to give him/her the job.
While a disabled person might be the ideal candidate for a certain role, their disability is likely to preclude them from even applying for a lot of vacancies. How, then, can a disabled person make the strongest case for himself/herself in trying to find work?
Burning Nights, a CRPS charity in the United Kingdom, attempted to meet this question head-on in the form of an infographic (see below) outlining how difficult it can be for people with disabilities to secure employment, along with the types of jobs which would be ideally suited to a disabled person. This, of course, will vary depending on the person’s aptitudes, but generally speaking, a job with a relatively low stress level which can be performed from home and which pays well is considered ideal.
Check out the infographic below for further advice and information on what it’s like for people with disabilities to search for employment.
