COSD – Career Opportunities for Students with Disabilities

You have a disability. 

Your resumé does not.

 

Career Opportunities for Students with Disabilities provides great resources for both employers and students! There’s a ton of info within this site, but here are the two main sections I focused on:

Full Access – networking and education summit uniting students and graduates with disabilities.

Career Gateway – COSD’s mission is to help corporate America find those graduates, and vice versa.

Here’s the Log In link for both students and employers.


Small Business in the US

This week I was reminded of a woman I met a few years back who started her own business. Lissie, of Lissie’s Luv Yums, was a guest speaker at a conference in Chicago and I was encouraged to hear her story of the road to employment. Lissie’s unique needs led she and her foster mom to design and develop a business which could provide flexibility and doing something she enjoyed, while earning income. Take a look at her video and website!

PS My Dog LOVED Lissie’s Luv Yums!!!
