Career Services specializes in working with people who have a disability. Career Services is partially funded to assist people with a developmental/intellectual disability and uses funds earned through their Social Enterprise Industry to assist a broader range of job seekers.

A: The journey to employment is different for different people. There are many factors that affect how long it takes to find a job. Every job seeker must consider their unique set of circumstances. Workopolis Canada reports that “Getting a new job takes time. Job searches can last anywhere from two days to over a year, but for most people it is roughly four months.”  Other reports indicate averages of 9 weeks to 5 months to find work.  We were not able to find average job search statistics for people with a disability.
