On October 9, the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center will host an informative webinar on disability hiring regulations. This presentation will cover the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA) and its effect on the legal definition of disability. It will also address Section 503 of the Rehab Act that regulates federal contractors hiring people with disabilities, and the 7% disability hiring goal, businesses inviting employees to disclose their disabilities, data collection and analysis, and other important regulations.

When you are emailing your resume or uploading it to a job board, it is important to name the file correctly. You might only have one file on your computer named “Resume.doc”, but the HR manager will have hundreds. Your resume could get lost, or even accidentally replaced by another file with the same name.
Instead, include your full name in the file name. If you are only applying for jobs in one field or profession, consider putting that in the file name as well. So, your resume file name might end up “John_Smith_Resume.doc”, or “Jame_Smith_Journalist_Resume.pdf.”
Finally, note those file extensions: .doc and .pdf. Unless the employer requests something different, those are the only two file types you should use. You don’t want to miss out on a job because you sent your resume in a file they can’t open!
