Hello job seekers. Here is the link to this week's North Coast Hot Jobs listing, https://www.scribd.com/document/318144366/North-Coast-Hot-Jobs-July-11
Disabilities can strike anyone. I once thought I was indestructible and now I am not. I am sure that we all know at least one person that has some sort of physical or mental disability that makes it difficult for them to do stuff. Some people are born with a certain disabling condition and some of us have it hit us later in life. According to the 2010 Census, 19% of Americans are disabled. These individuals may qualify for certain types of assistance.
They may have difficulties finding work or better work because of their disabilities. Because of this, steps have been taken to help these individuals find gainful employment. Each state has a department that works with people with disabilities. In this state, there are three; the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR), Department of Services for the Blind (DSB) and the Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA). If you or any of your friends have disabilities that affect their employment status, then have them contact their local DVR, DSB or DDA.
If you know of any Alaskan Native or Native American that is disabled and is having a hard time looking for work, ask them to contact the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe Vocational Rehabilitation Program Manager, Nora Norminton at 360-565-7257, ext 7483.
That is all for this week. Have a good one.
