All citizens should have the opportunity to fully participate in the job marketplace which is why we're reaching out to employers nationwide with this important goal in mind.
Longview, Texas (PRWEB) September 11, 2008
JobEnable.com, an online job bank that assists individuals with disabilities in finding employment, is commemorating National Disability Employment Awareness Month by giving employers a free job posting.
National Disability Employment Awareness Month, observed in October nationwide, highlights the abilities of employees and job candidates with disabilities and the contributions these Americans make in the workplace.
As employees, people with disabilities add to the range of viewpoints that businesses need to succeed, offering fresh ideas on how to solve problems, accomplish tasks and implement strategies. This untapped labor pool can offer a source of skilled employees and is one strategy to counter the effects of an aging and shrinking workforce.
At JobEnable.com, employers can post jobs and search the resume database to recruit qualified candidates who are disabled. Use of the site is free for job seekers. Candidates with disabilities can post resumes and search a database of job openings.
NetworkIP launched JobEnable in November 2007 as a way of supporting its employee, Matt Lawrence. At the age of 13, Matt developed Dystonia, a progressive neurological disorder that gradually progressed to affect his speech and fine motor movements. Lawrence currently serves on the Junior Advisory Council and the Dystonia Advocacy Coalition for the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation. He has also spoken to Congress and members of the US Senate on behalf of Dystonia. In addition, he has been a speaker at the Children and Family Dystonia Symposium.
"Our goal is that all companies take advantage of this opportunity to post a job opening," said NetworkIP CEO Pete Pattullo. "All citizens should have the opportunity to fully participate in the job marketplace which is why we're reaching out to employers nationwide with this important goal in mind."
"JobEnable.com is a valuable resource for anyone who feels they are being judged by their limitations instead of their abilities," added Rep. Kenny Marchant (24th District, Texas).

About National Disability Employment Awareness Month
Each October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month by congressional designation. This year's theme is "America's People, America's Talent…America's Strength." The Labor Department's Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) leads the nation's activities and produces materials to increase the public's awareness of the contributions and skills of American workers with disabilities. Typically, private sector; federal, state and local government; and advocacy organizations piggyback on the same theme to plan events and programs that showcase the abilities of employees and job candidates with disabilities.
