by | Jul 10, 2024 | Patient Resources

With over eight million disabled workers across the United States, there can be some challenges faced by these individuals in the workplace, including discrimination, lack of accommodations, and stereotyping. None of them are fair, but for a lot of workers, this is the reality they face when they’re looking for a job. 

Here, I’d like to share an online resource to help those in need of a boost with their resume-writing and other parts of the job finding process. It can be difficult for people with disabilities to find the right resources that they need to get the job that will best look after them.  

Over at Resume Builder, there’s a long list of the best tips and tricks to get ahead in your respective industry, specifically tailored for those with disabilities to take advantage of.

Resume Tips for Job Seekers With Disabilities 

Writing a resume as a disabled worker is the same as for any sort of worker—keep it concise, highlight your strengths, and tailor your resume to fit the job that you’re applying for. Simple, right? 

What’s important to note is that you have no legal obligation to disclose your disability on your resume, especially if your disability isn’t visible. If you believe that it’s important to disclose what’s going on to inform your employer about accommodations you may need, then disclosing your disability to your employer after scheduling an interview may be pertinent.  

If there’s a gap in your employment history due to hospital visits, recovery from illness, or something else, putting the gap on your resume could help explain to your employer why the gap exists at all. “Illness and Recovery” serves as a good catch-all for gaps that you’d rather not disclose to employers.
