Guide for Federal Job Seekers with Disabilities

U.S. Office of Personnel Management, By Valerie Lipow, Kim Isaacs, Allan Hoffman, Ryck Lent Monster Contributing Writers

Just because you have a physical limitation doesn’t mean you can’t work as well as the next guy. You are able to overcome your disability in your daily life, and you are eager to work!

If you have a disability, you know it will more than likely affect a potential employer’s attitude toward you. Even if your condition has no bearing on your ability to do the job, most employers will have some concerns. It’s up to you to show employers that, despite your disability, you’re the best person for the position.

Being informed is the best way to prove that you are aware of your situation and are willing to adapt (and show them how to adapt) in order to help the agency find the best person for the job – you!
