Talent Acquisition PortalĀ® Overview

How we got started

The Talent Acquisition PortalĀ® (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) candidates looking for employment and a job posting system for businesses looking to hire individuals with disabilities.

TAP was developed in response to the need and demand of businesses who needed access to a centralized talent pool of individuals with disabilities, but who also needed the ability to connect to support at the local, state, and national level. Businesses with multi state footprints can benefit from posting jobs to one place that reaches across the country, and have one place to connect to support of the National Employment Team (The NET) who offer support services around disability employment. For more information about how the NET can support your company through TAP email: kwest-evans@rehabnetwork.org

How TAP meets business needs

TAP offers business the opportunity to post jobs, 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.

Businesses will be able to measure the effectiveness of outreach and recruitment of individuals with disabilities, and be able to become leaders in the industry around the hiring of individuals with disabilities. We ask you to grow with us. Job seekers are looking for jobs, and employers are looking for candidates, so we have decided it is best to continue to grow together!
