Resources for Students with Disabilities

Career Development recognizes that students with disabilities often have unique situations and specific questions relating to navigating their career exploration and planning, or internship and job searches. Deciding when, how, and if to disclose a disability varies to each individual. Career Development is here to help! Call (507-933-7575) or stop in to schedule an appointment with a Career Development Specialist.

Quick Tip:

  • Call a company's Human Resources office from an anonymous number to discuss hypotheticals that may apply to you to get a sense where the company stands. It won't be connected to your application and you'll be able to decide if it is somewhere you want to apply to, interview at, or work for.
