Amidst Hate Speech Crackdown, Disabled Persons Still Loving Social Media - Page 2
Disabled Persons Still Find Social Jobs
Recruitment has changed dramatically over the past few years. Gone are the days of newspaper advertisements and faxed copies of CV’s arriving on your desk. These days, recruiters are using social media to harvest top talent, regardless where or what your physical condition may be.
Head hunters, recruitment agencies and companies are turning to the internet to fill open positions. Many of these recruiters will turn to social media, which is quickly becoming a favored recruitment tool – making those with disabilities still able to find contingency-based work normally unattainable in person. Since many people may have immobility issues yet can still type 60wpm, typing work mixes well with Skype for them.
Social Apps Help Disabled Stay Connected
In an effort towards convenience, a number of developers have made the world even smaller by combining multiple technologies in the palm of your hand to assist everyone, including those who’ve managed to accrue numerous friends yet may be ridden by such disorders as Spina Bifida. Software companies are breaking the norm and crossing borders, both figuratively and literally, by releasing a number of apps that can do everything from help you find an apartment to translate your speech – yet, even more impressively, software programmers have figured out how to find wheelchair accessible areas using apps like Wheelmap.
Regardless if using StumbleUpon, Twitter or LinkedIn, treating everyone with the dignity and respect they deserve - regardless if ridden with spina bifida or leukemia - should be your first priority. Let's stop social media hate speech, one 'Like' at a time.
