The purpose of this paper is to discuss job placement for handicapped and disadvantaged persons, and to present examples of jobs available to these special groups. Vocational education, the disadvantaged, and handicapped persons are identified to give better understanding as to why special programs and services are needed for those people with special needs. Job placement is discussed, including some vocational guidance that might lead to employment. Some disadvantaged groups' characteristics are discussed. A single case of a handicapped and a single case of a disadvantaged individual are not discussed as it seemed more meaningful, practical, and appropriate to discuss the handicapped and the disadvantaged persons as one issue.
