A career development approach to disability and vocational rehabilitation indicates the need to empower clients' capacity to enter the workforce through 'career enhancement'. This paper outlines a forum for university students with a disability that was informed by the notion of career enhancement and was conducted with the purpose of linking students, with one another, employers, employment agencies, State and Commonwealth Government agencies, and with key staff of the university's careers service. Feedback from students indicated the value of the event in terms outcome and process.
