Lincoln, NE (AP) - Nebraska Vocational Rehabilitation has launched a website to help businesses find skilled, qualified job applicants and to provide new job opportunities for people with disabilities.
The website is available at www.vr.nebraska.gov/business.
Jim Coyle, director of employment for Nebraska VR, says that with Nebraska's unemployment rate hovering at a low 3.5 percent, the organization's untapped resource of prescreened clients can be invaluable to employers.
Coyle says the website outlines the services available to businesses partnering with Nebraska VR to seek and hire people with disabilities, as well as comments from businesses that have found Nebraska VR to be an appropriate and effective service. The website also provides local contact information and answers to frequently asked questions.
Nebraska VR is run through the state Department of Education.
