Employer Overview: The NET and TAP



How it Works

A Competitive Package

The Talent Acquisition Portal® (TAP) is led by the Council of State Administrators of Vocational Rehabilitation and The National Employment Team (NET) in partnership with disABLEDperson, Inc. TAP is an online system which includes both a national talent pool of Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) or approved agency job seekers (candidates) looking for employment and a job posting system for businesses looking to hire individuals with disabilities.

We know that there are options out there, but we are confident that no option is as competitive as the one we offer. All employers who post jobs will have the jobs posted to disabledperson.com which is one of the premier job boards for people with disabilities, and have jobs posted on TAP. By gaining access to this portal through membership, you will not only have jobs posted to two of the premier sites in the country, but have access to disability support through the NET, be able to connect with Vocational Rehabiliation, and participate in virtual hiring events.


How TAP can meet business needs

By partnering with us, you can have jobs posted to disabledperson.com as well as TAP. disabledperson.com will allow you to gain coveted metrics, while TAP will allow you to connect direclty to agencies that serve individuals with disabilities.

TAP offers business the opportunity to post jobs that our community can search, search candidate resumes based on skill sets and geographic availability, capture job metrics, generate compliance reports, interview candidates, have online job fairs, and have their jobs seen by individuals with disabilities throughout the country. Businesses will also benefit from VR Counselors and qualified candidates searching the available opportunities. Small, medium, and large businesses all have the opportunity to receive all the benefits TAP offers through flexible job posting packages, and outreach opportunities.


Understanding the Vocational Rehabilitation Connection

Vocational Rehabilitation serves approximately one million individuals with disabilities per year, and has over 25,000 staff across 80 agencies in all 50 states and U.S. territories. VR offers the largest talent pool of candidates with disabilities in the United States, and the goal is to continue to train and bring on these agencies to work with businesses through TAP, making tapABILITY.org the premier web portal for businesses to hire individuals with disabilities.

TAP is supported by the National Employment Team(The NET) which includes VR Business Consultants in every state, the territories and D.C. who can partner and can provide support services to your business at the national, state and local level.

What makes the NET and TAP unique?

Working together is what makes the NET and TAP unique! You are not just posting a job and hoping someone sees it, you have the support of agencies and teams behind the system supporting their job seekers. As employers, you get access to a centralized talent pool of individuals with disabilities who have self-identified because of their affiliation with VR and other partner organizations who serve individuals with disabilities. Not only this, but employers are able to measure outreach and recruitment through state of the art reporting, while also getting access to the support of VR business consultants. Support services include: pre-employment, recruitment and retention support, staff training on disability awareness and employment laws, diversity program strategies, consultation and technical assistance, financial support, employee assistance, and access to VR at the local, state and national level.

We believe that the most successful way we can experience positive outcomes and hires of individuals with disabilities is through working together. Check out our brochure here to learn more: TAP and the NET
