    A resume must be impressive. But for people with disabilities, there s always an extra concern. At what stage of the process should the disability be mentioned—in the resume? On an application?

Illustrating the differences between chronological, functional, and combination resumes, as well as the specific uses of a targeted resume, the program explains why a candidate with a disability might choose one type or another and explores ways to submit an application package that is positive, professional, and proactive.
