Get Help With Career, Academic Goals With VetsFirst
VetsFirst, a program conducted by United Spinal Association, has created a new online resource for helping veterans make academic and career decisions.
The Disabled Veterans Employment Guide covers ADA protections including workplace accommodations as well as how to develop self-advocacy skills.
"The Disabled Veterans Employment Guide supplies information to disabled veterans about their rights and responsibilities as a worker or student with a disability,” said Heather Ansley, vice president of Veterans Policy at United Spinal Association. “Many other guides seem to focus on what employers need to know about hiring people with disabilities, but that is just one side of the coin.".
The guide also lists questions to guide veterans through finding employment and selecting an academic path.
