Join us at the 7th Annual Job Fair for Individuals with Visual Impairments.
This unique, free event will connect you to an untapped pool of candidates and prepare you to employ workers who are visually impaired.
At Perkins, we know that people who are blind or visually impaired are just as qualified for the world of work as their sighted peers. And yet any adults who are blind find themselves out of work and unable to secure an interview despite their capabilities. On October 25 we will bring these qualified candidates face to face with recruiters and representatives from dozens of respected nonprofits and businesses. The result is an afternoon of proactive networking and conversation, where candidates are judged by their knowledge and experience, not their disability.
For more information contact Karen McCormack, Job Developer for Educational Programs at Perkins School for the Blind at 617-972-7381 or Karen.McCormack@Perkins.org.
Co-sponsored by Perkins School for the Blind, Massachusetts Commission for the Blind, The Carroll Center for the Blind, National Braille Press and Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University to connect Massachusetts businesses and individuals who are blind and visually impaired to foster a strong workforce and career opportunities.
