Job Seeker Support

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. Please see the link below.
