Career Services works closely with Disability Services to serve students with disabilities their career development needs. Career development advisors can assist with specialized resumes, cover letters, preparing for interviews, and internship/job search strategies, as well as the graduate school application process.

The Americans with Disabilities Act provides federal protections and prevents private employers, state and local governments, employment agencies and labor unions from discriminating against qualified individuals with disabilities in job application procedures, hiring and other conditions.

Disclosing a Disability: Choosing when and how to disclose a disability is an important and personal decision. There is no one-size-fits-all answer for when to disclose. The National Collaborative on Workforce and Disability compiled a nationally recognized book and resources on disability disclosure.
