Due to COVID-19, many Maine residents find themselves out of work, with reduced hours, and/or working remotely. As a result, large numbers of people—including those with disabilities—must make employment-related decisions based on new financial situations. Check out this new Financial Toolkit!

Studies have shown that 92% of companies are using social media for hiring and that three out of four hiring managers will search for a candidate’s social profiles.
