ASTTBC knows that individuals with disabilities/diverse abilities can make excellent, hardworking and committed employees. Still, we also understand that the job search can be challenging and frustrating. Sometimes it is a struggle to find employers who are willing to give you the opportunity to prove yourself and show them what you can do. ASTTBC participated in research which resulted in a Framework Matrix which includes information and resources to help you explore possible careers in the applied science and engineering sector as well as support you with your job search.
