National Federation of the Blind (NFB) 2017 National Job Fair

Tuesday, July 11, 2017, 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM (UTC-6:00) Central Time (US & Canada)

Dear Employers,

 

Have you ever seen gold ore?  It’s basically quartz rock with a few yellow streaks running through it. Who would imagine it could be worth that much?  Blind people are the same way, often overlooked in favor of sighted people who are far less qualified.  It’s time to see them as they are - one of the world’s great untapped resources!

 

We offer the largest Job Fair for blind and low vision job seekers in the world.  You’ll be amazed at the skills our jobseekers have, and if you don’t know how capable blind and low vision people can be, this is a great place to learn!  We expect well over 300 blind and low vision job seekers and more than 30 national and international employers, including a number from the Fortune 1500.  Our employer attendees collect stacks of resumes and often find exactly the right fit.  Most employers return year after year! 

 

Cost:

Free! There is no charge to employers or job seekers participating in the Job Fair, although donations are always welcome.  We especially welcome our convention sponsors, who get the best tables in the house. 

 

Employer Registration:

To sign up, complete the form on page two found in this document, separate it, and e-mail it to me at ddavis@blindinc.org.  You’ll be notified of your acceptance right away, and given additional information about the Job Fair.  Your contact information (see form on next page) will be published on our website at https://employment.nfb.org so blind and low vision jobseekers can learn more about you, prepare targeted resumes and cover letters for you, and follow-up with you afterward.  If you have questions, please e-mail me at ddavis@blindinc.org or call me at 612-719-0753.

 

This is a great event, and well worth your time.  Our job seekers are first rate, and we treat our employers first rate too.  I’m looking forward to seeing you there!
