Career Technology Tools That Benefit Individuals With Disabilities

Posted by Insightlink on 02/10/23

Career technology has come a long way in recent years, allowing us to work from home, use tools to make remote work easier, and even promote our accomplishments and share resumes with the click of a button. For individuals who are living with a disability, career tech can mean a number of things, and exploring all of the available options can feel overwhelming if you’re unsure of where to start. It can be helpful to look for online resources for those first steps that connect educators with job opportunities.
Here, Insightlink presents a few ways technology can help advance your career when you’re living with a disability.

Create a Stunning Resume

Unlike the meager career resources that were available just 25 or 30 years ago, we now have access to a wealth of simple tools online like resume builders that make the process of creating an eye-catching resume – and sharing it with potential employers – much easier. If you’re looking for customizable resume templates, give this a go.
Not only can you build a resume that highlights your skills and accomplishments in a succinct and professional voice, you can upload it to a platform like LinkedIn, which will get you much more exposure to the right audience. There are a few musts when working with LinkedIn, including using a photo that isn’t distracting and briefly explaining your area of expertise. This will allow you to make the most of the platform, as will using the premium version, so you can send direct messages and see who has been viewing your page.

Go Back to School

Whether you’re looking for your dream job or are just thinking about the best way to create positive change in your career, there are many educational opportunities available that are easy to take advantage of, thanks to technology. With several remote learning resources like online classes and communication tools, as well as assistive tools that allow individuals with disabilities to have accessibility, there are myriad ways you can pursue advanced education and further your career. You can either go for a degree or certification, all from the comfort of your own home.

Learn More About the Latest Tech

Assistive tools can help you with school, your career, or daily life, and staying on top of the latest available options is crucial since technology evolves so quickly. Adaptive keyboards, text-to-speech software, voice assistants, and smart tools are all great examples of the kinds of tech you can use to make work easier, whether you’re getting it done at home or in the office.

Start a Business of Your Own

Ready for a major change? Consider starting a business of your own by utilizing online tools that will allow you to create an ecommerce store or build a website to showcase your products or services. With so many entrepreneurs taking the leap these days, there is more helpful content online than ever before that’s specifically aimed at helping business owners get started with a great idea.
From writing a business plan to finding funding to running daily operations smoothly from your home, there are tons of tech tools that can help you make it happen. Not only that, you’ll have the flexibility you need to take care of your family or go back to school at the same time.

Use Technology to Follow Your Dreams

Using technology to advance your career is much easier these days than ever before; however, it’s important to do some research and find the best tools for your specific needs. Free and low-cost online resources, such as resume builders and networking sites like LinkedIn, can be highly beneficial as well. Once you find the support that you need, pursue your goals, whether they include going back to school or even starting your own business.
