You may wonder how Accessible Career got started. I (Kim Parker, MA, LPC (Texas #70157) formed Accessible Career in 2017 to help recent college graduates who live with disabilities to launch a career they love. I work at an area university in the disability services office and I enjoy helping students complete their education. However, I noticed that students, particularly those with autism spectrum disorders, struggle to get that first professional job. So I coach students toward launching their career. But I also provide counseling for mental wellness.
For professionals that struggle to balance a full time job and their health, I want to explore options. If someone would make better money starting their own business, I will share what I’ve learned starting a practice. I am willing to have the hard conversations about exiting the work world if needed.
Computer Professional to Counselor
As a computer professional for twenty years, I often mentored others. I wanted to continue to help college grads as they get started. My heart is for those living with disabilities. I believe they have a lot to offer any company. It’s fun to show them how to get their foot in the door.
Often, it helps to have a guide to navigate the process of accommodations on the job. You can talk with a third-party in safety about your options. What you share with us stays in our offices. You can say things to us that you would not say to your boss. Give us a call to find a better career.
I am excited to work with you to help you find a career you love.
