How Career Services can Best Serve Students with Disabilities

Career Services offices assist all college students with planning and preparing for post-college life.  Students with disabilities may have some unique considerations to be aware of, both legally and practically, in order to best advise and guide them through their job search, application, and pre-employment processes. This session will inform Career Services professionals about those legal and practical considerations, and what resources and information exist to help enhance knowledge in this area, so they can best serve this diverse population of students.
