Earlier this week, representatives from several Florida state agencies unveiled a new tool to connect Floridians with disabilities to available jobs.
The presentation at the Florida Cabinet meeting included an overview of the new Abilities Work Web Portal and Help Desk. Both tools were designed to help employers recruit and hire more applicants with disabilities who are ready and able to work, and inform them of the available support that can help an individual succeed on the job.
“I’m pleased the Department of Education’s Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, Division of Blind Services and Bureau of Exceptional Education and Student Services could collaborate with such dedicated partners to bring this project to life,” said Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart.
The tools are available at AbilitiesWork.employflorida.com.
