The Hidden Curriculum of Keeping a Job

May 18 @ 6:30 pm 7:45 pm

Adults with disabilities often have difficulty keeping a job — experiencing challenges that are often unrelated to their job skills. This session provides necessary yet often untaught information — the hidden curriculum — on a variety of topics related to finding a mentor, networking, talking with supervisors, dealing with on-the-job-frustrations, understanding the social rules at work maintaining a job, and many other topics.
