Why not volunteer work or temporary employment for people with disabilities?Posted: November 15, 2012
Why not? I/us people with disabilities could really put allot of effort into working as a volunteer leading up to eventual paid employment. Temporary work can also be a very good thing, since it’s basically limited in how long the employment would last and it’ll really help the disabled gain experience in that area of skills they could put to use in jobs of the same area that are long term.
I’m basically saying, I would gladly work as a volunteer for a company, be it general labor (or work with computers) or anything I am able to do or handle without making a mistake that affects the company/plant I’m hired to work at. Even if it’s temporary work, I could do it. I’m going to be actively looking at all sources of employment/job boards that I can possibly find and sign up for.
I’m really wanting to exceed my own expectations to the best of my abilities and strengths, not focusing on the weaknesses and issues that affect me or anybody else that has similar issues, be it mentally or physically.
I wish employers would give people the chance and focus on their strengths and abilites, evaluate them and see how well, how good they work, including the amount of effort they put towards the work/tasks they’re expected to complete or at least try to complete successfully without much difficulty.
I’m hoping to find work very soon, I really am glad to write this up and to give people insight they might not be able to find elsewhere on the internet that WASN’T written by anyone with a disability.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read this. I hope I inspired you to think outside of the box.
