Although the weather was rainy and dreary the day of Friday, April 27th, Eastern Bank was full of sunshine and admiration. Friday, April 27, 2018 was Disability Mentorship Day (DMD) at the bank, a Work Without Limits initiative I had been coordinating along with my co-worker Chrissie Stevens. DMD is a large-scale national effort sponsored by the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) for students and job-seekers with disabilities. I am new at the bank and this was my first time coordinating DMD and I did not know what to expect, but I was so pleasantly surprised!

Jobs Without Limits (JWL) is a free online job board that was developed by Work Without Limits to help connect qualified job seekers with disabilities to leading disability inclusive companies that are Sponsors of Work Without Limits and therefore committed to diversifying their workforces. Launched in the summer of 2015, JWL was beta tested by job seekers with disabilities, whose feedback was used to enhance the ease of use, navigability, and function of the job board. Though it is always a work in progress and we continually enhance the functionality to best meet the needs for both candidates and employers, JWL offers candidates with disabilities a safe place to self-identify and disability-inclusive employers to actively seek diverse candidates.
