The goal of this guide is to centralize countless resources that come into play as students, job seekers, and their supporters strive to bring employment or entrepreneurship to full fruition. Since no such document has existed previously (at least insofar as is known by its author), you’ll get a big-picture view of precisely what services are most useful based on the stage where you find yourself in the employment or entrepreneurial process. In balancing attention to detail with the need to understand how all the pieces fit together, more than 300 hyperlinked resources and footnotes allow you to skim the document and hone in on employment topics that are most relevant to your personal situation. It’s best to first read the main text in its entirety, only referring to linked resources as necessary, depending on how much detail you want to explore on each subject. Considering that you could easily become overwhelmed with the amount of information, recognize that this resource document is intended to serve as an ongoing reference guide. It can help you at differentpoints in your life as your priorities change over time.
The compilation of these many resources, which began in 2007, has indeed been a labor of love. It will continue to be revised from time to time as new national resources are brought to the author’s attention. The objective is to provide information that is of practical use, and to facilitate collaboration and communication between the disability community and those who work to advance their employment and self-employment goals.
