Appreciate the perspective

As an employer who is looking to continue to diversify my workforce and recruit diverse perspectives, I appreciate the point of view of this book from the perspective of the job seeker and their support team. Great ideas that will help me better prepare to support candidates as well. The audiobook format is clear and simple to consume.

Avoiding Career Traps

At 76, Jim is a fox who is using his experience with a lifelong disability to identify (and avoid) traps that can hobble us all, disabled or not, in pursuing a meaningful, rewarding career. Chris, the narrator, drew me into each chapter.

Dwelling in Possibility

I plead guilty. I dwell in possibility for those with a disability. Am I naïve, sheltered from reality? Maybe. Or, do parents and mentors heed my call to be proactive in preparing youngsters for a new work world where disability as a negative is no longer relevant -- and that, in fact, disability is becoming a positive? My takeaway is that college students with a disability need to use their savvy to show employers they have a competitive edge as prospective employees precisely because they have learned to live well with vulnerability through creativity and persistence.
