Questions to ask yourself if you have a disability and want to explore employment:

  • Are you looking for full time, part time, temporary, seasonal, or continuous employment?
  • Are you looking for indoor or outdoor work? Physical work or work that’s mainly about thinking, planning, and creating? Do you like simple routines, or do you prefer work with variety and the unexpected? Do you want to work with the public or behind the scenes? Do you want coworkers, or do you prefer working by yourself?
  • Do you have a specific career in mind, or are you open to a variety of fields?
  • How do you plan to talk about your disability? Will you keep it to yourself or inform your employers … and at what point? Will you need some accommodations on the job? Are you concerned about discrimination or being screened out because of your disability? Can you explain your disability simply, briefly, in a way that makes people more comfortable?

These are just a few questions to get you started, and give your job search some focus. Meanwhile, if you haven’t already, reach out for some additional help with your job search and preparation:


A general regional resource for all job seekers.


Provides help and, in some cases, funding assistance for job seekers with disabilities.


Provides employment services for people who are blind or visually impaired.


Peer support and information on employment, benefits management, workplace accommodations, and disability rights laws in the workplace.
