GettingHired.com is a website that offers employment options for persons with disabilities, as well as opportunities for employers to connect with skilled workers.

GettingHired.com - Disability Employment Central

GettingHired.com is a website that offers employment options for persons with disabilities, as well as opportunities for employers to connect with skilled workers.

The site is incredibly well-created, presenting not only committed employers and jobs, but advocacy organizations and services associated with persons with disabilities. The website for GettingHired.com is currently in its Beta version, making me very excited and in great anticipation of the full version of the site.

The very mission of GettingHired.com is, 'To create sustainable employment growth and opportunity for people with disabilities.' The site connects and serves Job Seekers with Disabilities, Committed Employers, Advocacy Organizations, and Service Providers. The site has incorporated a number of services which are free, designed to assist people in preparing for both the work place and careers. GettingHired.com offers a networking medium that helps them to connect not only to each other, but to career mentors. The site helps people to highlight their individual talents, skills, and backgrounds. No one is asked to disclose a disability at any place on the site. GettingHired.com uses, 'Right Match,' technology in order to match individuals and their unique qualifications to specific job requirements and facilitate the success of all involved.

The GettingHired.com website offers employers annual subscriptions, giving them a cost-effective solution for both identifying and connecting with qualified potential employees from a greatly under-utilized population. Their use of Right Match technology presents employers with highly-efficient and effective candidate identification. GettingHired.com receives guidance from an active Advisory Council that is comprised of people who are dedicated to the advancement of persons with disabilities. A number of the members on the Advisory Council hold leadership positions with organizations that have a focus on both serving and representing persons with disabilities through direct service and advocacy. GettingHired.com uses best practices and latest technology, helping it to provide unrestricted access to persons with disabilities - despite the disability the person may experience.

EMPLOYERS

Employers who are seeking qualified and skilled employees could not find a better place to advertise their company or open positions. The challenge of finding talented employees who will remain dedicated is only getting more difficult. I can say from not only experience, but studies through two universities, that people with disabilities are often the most dedicated and hard-working employees an employer will ever find. GettingHired.com has the ability to connect employers with this very pool of enthusiastic job candidates who are often overlooked by other employers; all an employer has to do is simply join the site.

GettingHired.com is a job portal for the twenty-three million or more Americans with disabilities who are currently seeking employment. The site is a social networking community filled with workers who are not only qualified, they are very capable, and disproportionately underemployed or unemployed. Employers who join GettingHired.com have the ability to access this immense pool of skilled workers, strengthening their organization with workers who are dedicated and loyal. I can't imagine a better match.

The GettingHired.com website has a variety of admirable features to offer employers. These features give employers the opportunity to strengthen their workforce while improving their organization. These features include:

RightMatch technology that connects qualified candidates to specific position requirements
Network with others to share their employment program for people with disabilities
Access to their Service Provider Network that provides accommodation solutions
Access to thousands of qualified job-seekers
High exposure for low subscription fees
EEO and OFCCP compliance

ADVOCACY AGENCIES

Persons with disabilities in America today are facing an incredible number of challenges on a daily basis; particularly in the workplace. Greater than twenty-three million Americans with disabilities are either underemployed or unemployed - despite their level of education, or their professional qualifications.

Their mission works directly with yours; advocating for both the rights and dignity of persons living with disabilities.
