Disability and Federal Employment/Contracting

Hello

 

I am nearing retirement in my current job. I have been in IT for 30 years, mainly as a programmer with some management and PM work. I have cerebral palsy. Currently, I process a CSSLP, CRISC, and CIPT.

 

I have heard that the Feds are good about hiring the handicapped. And, I am hoping that would carry over to contractors working for the Feds. Other then USAJOB.GOV, I do not know how to begin to find opportunities.

 

Could somebody point help me know how to start?

 

Thank you,

Re: Disability and Federal Employment/Contracting

With DoD set to impose new certification requirements on the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) you are in the right market with the right credentials, especially having a CSSLP.  DIB partners will be looking to consultants to help implement and measure their cybersecurity maturity. I'd suggest "marketing" your skills to those third-party consultants.
