A Great Resource for Finding Jobs: Federal Contractors

At a time when the job market seems so incredibly challenging, it would be natural to think there are no opportunities for job seekers with disabilities. However, several large companies are making strong efforts to hire people with disabilities, including Bank of America, Coca-Cola, JP Morgan Chase, and others. Consider taking a look at companies involved with either Disability:IN or the National Organization on Disability (NOD).

Given that these are not the largest employers in Los Angeles, it is even more exciting that under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, the federal government requires all of its contractors to have plans in place with the goal of getting to seven percent of people with disabilities. This means that any federal contractor, which includes huge percentage of employers (anyone who sells goods or services to the federal government), is probably working hard to recruit and integrate employees with disabilities in all parts of their workforce.
