Project Possibility is a non-profit organization that connects students and end users with career opportunities. Our ambition is to inspire tomorrow’s innovators to incorporate universal design into the products they create.
Hiring Persons with Disabilities
Our partners in industry and academia regularly tell us the challenges they face in recruiting talent. Leading technology companies are recruiting for developers and designers who can be immediate contributors — not only in keeping products Section 508 compliant, but also in creating innovative solutions that make technology intuitive and accessible for all their customers.
Federal contractors meanwhile are searching for new ways to meet the Department of Labor’s Section 503 guidelines. In 2014 DOL established a nationwide goal of 7%: job groups should aim to be 7% staffed by persons with disabilities.
From job fairs to corporate training workshops, our programs help your organization meet the recruiting challenges you face. For persons with disabilities, we hold seminars to prepare you for meeting the firms. We’ll guide you through the entire process, from sending out resumes to acing the interview and negotiating the job offer.

Students today want more than just jobs that provide a paycheck. They want to start careers with impact, where they can use the skills they learn in the classroom to make a meaningful difference in others’ lives. Our programs inform students of the opportunities that exist for them in accessibility, and hope to inspire them to enter the field.
Our university programs reach students worldwide. We’ve collaborated with universities across the US, Europe and Asia. Top computer science students gain exposure to accessibility through coding competitions. After the events, the projects students submit are released on our website. All the projects are open source, and free for all to download and use.
