Career Development and Employment Resources

At DSS we believe not only in providing reasonable accommodations to ensure the academic potential of our students at GW, but also in preparing them for life beyond GW.  DSS, along with the GW Career Center, has created a graduate internship position to help serve the career development needs of our students. The Graduate Intern keeps DSS students informed about career development opportunities specifically designed for individuals with disabilities and can provide help with job searches, cover letter and résumé development, and career counseling.

Following the model set forth by Career Opportunities for Students with Disabilities (COSD), the Graduate Intern works as a liaison between the DSS office and the GW Career Center. (The COSD Career Gateway (http://www.cosdonline.org) is the only privately-funded nationwide job posting and college student résumé database focused on college students with disabilities.) DSS and the Career Center also collaborate each year to bring students registered with DSS a great opportunity for summer and potentially permanent employment through the U.S. Department of Labor, which has selected GW as a site for the Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP).

In these web pages, maintained by the Graduate Intern, DSS students can find information on career consulting, employment and internship opportunities, and various resources to assist them in their job search.
