The newly renovated job-opportunity network AbilityLinks launches to more effectively promote the hiring of people with disabilities.

New features include a more accessible design, which is easier to navigate and has a more appealing look and feel; a quicker posting of resumes and jobs; and the ability for users to set up automated job-search agents.

“We are always striving to provide job-seekers with disabilities and employers with the best, most user-friendly services,” says Ken Skord, AbilityLinks program director, in a media release. “Our new website is a result of thoughtful collaboration with site users, including business leaders and job-seekers, as well as our own staff and steering committee, all thinking about the current challenges employers and job-seekers face.”

AbilityLinks was created in 2001 by staffers at Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital, part of Northwestern Medicine.
