We shared five key tips for job seekers who registered for our career fairs this year to engage with employers to find a job.
Our key takeaways included doing research on participating employers and coming up with questions in advance to make the most of these events. Stay tuned for our 2019 online career fairs, which will be announced early in 2019.
At Getting Hired, we are often asked by job seekers if they qualify as having a disability because they’d like to leverage our website as a career resource and apply for jobs with our inclusive employer partners.
Due to this frequently asked question, we created a blog that included a list of some disabilities that would qualify someone to be a Getting Hired job seeker.
The list is only meant to be a guide as it doesn’t include all disabilities but we received so much positive feedback from both employers and job seekers that this blog was a helpful resource that it made our top 2018 list.
Every year Disability:IN and the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) provide an opportunity for their employer partners to take a Disability Equality Index (DEI) survey to receive an objective score on how their organization is supporting disability inclusion through their policies and practices.
We hope this list gives insight into some of the information and guidance job seekers have been able to access on the Getting Hired blog throughout 2018.
With plenty more tips, inspiration and advice to follow in 2019, individuals with disabilities should ensure they check the blog regularly and follow us on social media to stay up to date with the latest trends and job openings!
