Most of the 8.5 million persons with disabilities living in Turkey cannot find a job just because they have some kind of a disability. Mehmet Kızıltaş, who is aware of the obstacles to disabled people’s participation in employment, created www.engelsizkariyer.com website in 2005. The website is Turkey’s first career and human resources portal for persons with disabilities, which brings together persons with disabilities looking for a job and employers looking for employees with disabilities. Engelsizkariyer aims to achieve more qualified employees with disabilities in work life.

Since 2008, trainings were provided to thousands of persons with disabilities all around Turkey on ‘career days’ with the leadership of Engelsizkariyer. There are around 7,000 CVs in the database of the website as of January, 2015. Engelsizkariyer.com provides employment to tens of persons with disabilities so that they can build a career.

www.engelsizkariyer.com website filled a gap in the field of disability. It tried to contribute to disabled people’s employment, even in a minor way. The website not only provided jobs for the disabled, but also guided them to areas where they could build a career. This way, it created a big difference in the lives of persons with disabilities, as well as the professional environment of companies.
