With DisabilityWORK.com, people with disabilities have an opportunity to showcase their talents in front of a receptive audience -- i.e., interested and motivated employers.
Sioux Falls, SD (PRWEB) January 9, 2007
Access Solutions, LLC has announced the launch of DisabilityWORK.com, a service that brings employers and people with disabilities together. Employers can expect to reach an untapped pool of qualified workers, while people with disabilities have a new venue in which to showcase their talents.
DisabilityWORK.com consists of several different services for both employers and people with disabilities. Employers can search a database of resumes to find prospective candidates to fill needed positions. They can also post their job openings on the website (http://www.DisabilityWORK.com) and utilize DisabilityWORK.com’s headhunting services. People with disabilities can not only post their resumes on the website, but they can also use an array of services ranging from resume-writing and career coaching to job placement and job coaching.
“Disabled Americans are a great untapped labor pool,” states Samuel Hawk, founder and president of DisabilityWORK.com. “Anecdotal evidence suggests that they work harder and are more reliable than the general population. With unemployment levels near historical low levels, employers are turning to non-traditional populations to fill their vacant positions.”
The service is also available to employment service agencies such as Vocational Rehabilitation offices which can peruse these services in their daily efforts to assist disabled clients with gaining employment.
Being deaf himself, Hawk has first-hand knowledge of the challenges disabled people face in the working world. As a teenager, he was denied the chance to take over his grandfather’s business because the executors of his grandfather’s will felt that a deaf person would not be able to manage certain aspects of the business.
Hawk continues, “With DisabilityWORK.com, people with disabilities have an opportunity to showcase their talents in front of a receptive audience -- i.e., interested and motivated employers.”
Perusing DisabilityWORK.com’s services is as simple as creating a profile at the website, then scanning the various pages, inputting specific search parameters to generate desired results. The website can be found at http://www.DisabilityWORK.com.
DisabilityWORK.com is a service of Access Solutions, LLC which is a one-stop shop for products and services geared towards the community of people with disabilities. Access Solutions is also operated by Hawk.
This press release was distributed through eMediawire by Human Resources Marketer (HR Marketer: http://www.HRmarketer.com) on behalf of the company listed above.
