The Ticket to Work program is not a direct hiring program. However, our new Find a Job feature at choosework.net can point you to job search resources and special hiring programs for people with disabilities.

There are two key kinds of work opportunities that your Ticket to Work service provider can help you explore - federal jobs and jobs with federal contractors.

• Federal Employment - Schedule A is a rule that creates job openings in the federal government for people with significant disabilities. The rule allows the government to hire people with significant disabilities without requiring they compete against jobseekers that do not have a disability. Schedule A employees work on a trial basis. If at the end of the period if they receive positive reviews, they may be eligible for a switch to a career-conditional appointment.

Are you interested in working for the government? Want to learn more about Schedule A? Check out the answers to these frequently asked questions.

• Employment with Federal Contractors - The newly revised Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 bars federal contractors and subcontractors from discriminating against people with disabilities. The law requires these employers to take action to recruit, hire, promote and retain people with disabilities. You can learn more about Section 503 by attending this month's Work Incentives Seminar Event (register here!), or through this blog post and Ticket Talk podcast.

Looking for job options beyond these listed? There are many other opportunities that may be a good fit for you. To explore other job openings, visit American Job Center's Find a Job website.

There are many employers looking to hire people like you! Head to the Find a Job feature on choosework.net to start your job search, or connect with a Ticket to Work service provider today for job support.
