  • Posted a new discussion, Disclosure 101
      Individuals with disability who are looking for work will have to consider whether or not they want to disclose their disability to their future employer. Before you make a decision about disclosure, it is important to understand the facts and to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of disclosing your disability.   What is Disclosure?   If you choose to disclose, you are making a decision to release confidential information about your disability to your employer. No one can force you into disclosing and only you can make the decision to tell your future boss or supervisor. It is against the law for a supervisor to make you disclose. Your disability will remain confidential until YOU decided to tell others about your disability. ...

  • This Goodwill article was interesting. I was working with a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor, who was trying to STEER me toward working at Goodwill. And away from a position as a Mediator between Law Enforcement and Gang Members. I had the knowledge, skills and motivation to have been very effective in this position. Unfortunately, it was the physical limitation from my work injury/disability that would not allow me to do it. And so I continue on - NEVER giving up. Thank you for the information provided in this Jobs Group.

  • Hi, I am a Chronic Pain sufferer. I have Pudendal/Peripheral Neuropathy and Depression. I am unable to work outside of my home on a full-time basis. So I became a Certified Christian Life Coach almost 2 years ago and started my own Company called, "A Different Path Christian Life Coaching" in 2012. I have a desire to help other chronic pain sufferers - to rediscover the meaning, purpose, and joy in their lives in the midst of or in spite of their pain. Unfortunately, the growth of my business has been very slow - so in the meantime I have applied for Social Security Disability and my initial Application was just denied. I am in the process of appealing. But it has been a difficult process so far. I could use all of the support and "friendship" that I could get right about now - the whole situation is a bit depressing to say the least... God Bless and thanks for "listening". Peace!

  • By SUSANNA KIM (@skimm) Jan. 3, 2013 Getty Images Looking for a low-stress job? Being a full-time university professor is the least stressful career for 2013, according to jobs siteCareerCast.com. It's the first time that career has won the title of least stressful in the site's 20-year history of assessing jobs. "Professors are kings of their kingdoms," said Tony Lee, publisher of CareerCast.com and JobsRated.com. "They tell students what they must do." Lee said the list does not distinguish whether a professor is tenured, though that may be a factor in stress-level. University professors, with a median salary of $62,050, topped last year's winning career, which was medical records technicia ...
