TalentWorks: Accessibility Resources for Online Job Seekers

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) has launched “TalentWorks,” a free tool that helps employers and human resources professionals ensure that online job applications and other recruitment tools are accessible for jobseekers with disabilities. 

Created by ODEP’s Partnership on Employment & Accessible Technology, "TalentWorks" offers employers tip sheets on making online job applications, digital interviews, pre-employment tests and resume upload programs accessible. 

Questions: What do you think of these resources?  Can they be adapted for use with adult learners with disabilities as part of a pre-employment curriculum?
