Event description

Description

The employAbility Career Expo is dedicated to helping organizations and individuals with disabilities meet and explore employment opportunities.

Employers

Over 50 employers are expected to participate in the 2019 employAbility Career Expo. Attendees from last year's expo included AT&T, American Airlines, Dr. Pepper/Snappy, Bank of America, Lowes, Southwest Airlines, Tom Thumb, Mariott, Wells Fargo and many more!

New ways to network!
If you would like to make your resume available to the employers registered to attend the employAbility 2019 Career Expo, we will have a Dropbox feature made available to you. Participating employers will be provided access to job seeker resumes prior to the Career Expo but, we cannot guarantee that your resume will be reviewed. By submitting your resume you acknowledge that such submission is not considered a nomination for a job, but only an opportunity for potential contact by a participating employer.

The vendor booths will showcase some of the resources available to the community. Attitudes & Attire will also be hosting a class on wearing the right clothes for the right job. Bank of America will be providing a Money Management Course. In addition, attendees will be able to take advantage of classes offered on On-Line Applications and Assessments, interviewing tips and resume reviews that will be held at various times throughout the day.

Upload your resume in advance

If you would like to make your resume available to the employers registered to attend the employAbility 2019 Career Expo, please submit your resume before October 18, 2019.
