How to Get a Job With a Disability [INFOGRAPHIC]
Some working environments can place considerable physical and mental burden on people who are of perfect health in body and mind. If those people find a job difficult to perform, think of how hard it would be for someone with a physical or mental disability: the type of person for whom everyday situations can be tough.
While many people with disabilities often demonstrate extraordinary resilience and courage, seeing the positives from their situation while others readily focus on negatives, some jobs are so demanding that they inevitably take their toll on the people entrusted with them. Thankfully, there are plenty of jobs that require minimal physical exertion and stress is relatively low. For example, working as an accountant or a career guidance counselor doesn’t require you to be on your feet all day or to exercise your body vigorously. Also, the increasing prevalence of flexible working arrangements makes it very possible to perform jobs like these without needing to leave the house.

Likewise, if you’re disabled and you have job interview approaching, you’re perfectly entitled to ask about the possibility of conducting the interview virtually, through Skype, for instance. Even if the employer can’t make these arrangements, they could agree to hold the interview in an accessible ground floor location. Once at the interview stage, you should then emphasize how they can overcome the challenges you face instead of stressing the burden that the job could entail. If an employer sees someone who is determined in the face of adversity, they are likely to see the person as a valuable asset to the company.
This infographic from Burning Nights is a great resource for job seekers with disabilities, advising them on how to approach the search for employment and how to talk up their attributes rather than feeling inhibited by difficult situations.
