WORKFORCE DIVERSITY Online Job Search


Web Sites Most of the Web-based job search en-


gines (i.e., Monster.com and Careerbuild- er.com) have a section of their Web sites that focus on “diversity jobs.” Depending on the Web site, the information can vary from a list of employers who have a posi- tive track record hiring people of diverse backgrounds to a listing of open positions at companies that are encouraging appli- cants of diverse backgrounds. Employers can search resumes of applicants who have chosen to self-identify as being from a diverse background on most of these Web sites. These diversity searches are not always disability specific.


Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD) www.ahead.org AHEAD is a professional association committed to the full participation of per- sons with disabilities in postsecondary


education. Its Web site provides contact information for Disability Services Advi- sors at colleges and universities across the nation, which can be useful to employers seeking job candidates in a specific area. Many Disability Services Offices keep a list of students and recent graduates with disabilities who are looking for employ- ment.


Career Opportunities for Students with Disabilities (COSD) www.cosdonline.org Through its Career Gateway Database,


COSD provides a Web-based forum where employers can search for qualified candidates, and graduating college and university students can post their resumes.


American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) www.aapd.com AAPD is the largest national nonprofit cross-disability member organization in


the United States, representing the more than 56 million Americans with disabili- ties. To reach out to both youth and adult job seekers with disabilities, email your job announcement to AAPD; they will post your company’s name, position loca- tion, position title, and a link to your posi- tion description on their Web site.


Job Accommodation Network (JAN) http://AskJAN.org Funded by ODEP, JAN is a free con-


sulting service that provides individual- ized accommodation solutions for the workplace, technical assistance on the employment provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other disability-related


legislation, education
