Hiring 100,000 People with Disabilities?

Yep, that’s the mandate set down by President Obama.  “The Executive Order requires the hiring of an additional 100,000 people with disabilities within the federal government over the next 5 years,” said Kathleen Martinez, Assistant Secretary for the Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP),  in her testimony before a Senate committee on July 14.

If you would like to apply for one or more of those 100,000 jobs, go to USAJOBS, the federal government’s official website for federal jobs and employment information.
