|What is a Job?|

Before you can start your job search, it's important to understand the world or work and what's happening in employment in general and employment of people with Disabilities in particular. I would also like to add on this as well, there are some people out there that really don't understand other's whom maybe looking for a job!!!! that does have a disability. People that don't have a learning disability, or any disability for that matter don't have too go through that Challenges, and struggle that most of us do in finding work, to suit everyones needs and abilities.....
Basically, a "job" is created when a business needs a specific task to be completed and is willing to pay someone else to do it. Sometimes, an employer thinks of several things that maybe one person could do. But there are times that it would take more than one too do that job!!!! These responsibilities, that are given from the employer to whom he or she is forming a job and the person or persons, who performs them becomes and employee. The way the world is it's going too be very tough to perform any jobs!!!!due to the fact of the economy and the finances are going.....And the economy plays a very big part in this in order for people to find a "job" and even one that pay's good. But it is even harder for people with a disability, to find a job because some people look at us as being different.... In times of slow growth, some employers may cut jobs which means that more workers are competing for fewers job opening. This doesn't mean, however, that there are no jobs--it simply means that the competition for meaningful work is tougher.
