Career fairs are an excellent way to start or advance your job search. Virtual job fairs give you the chance to engage with potential employers and learn about job openings from the comfort of your own home. This month Social Security is also exploring some online tools you can use to advance your job search.
- AbilityJobs offers specific online resources for job seekers with disabilities.
- Ticket to Work’s “Find a Job” page offers resources to help you start or continue your job search.
- RecruitMilitary seeks to tap into the extensive talent pool that veterans represent for employers.
Social Security’s Ticket to Work (Ticket) program supports career development for people ages 18 through 64 who receive Social Security disability benefits (SSI or SSDI) and want to work. The Ticket program is free and voluntary. It helps people with disabilities move toward financial independence and connects them with the services and support they need to succeed in the workforce.
By participating in the Ticket to Work (Ticket) program, you’ll have access to a wide variety of services from Ticket program service providers that offer free short-term and long-term supports to help you find and maintain employment.
