Description

Talent Connection: Uniting Long Island's Top Employers With Differently-Abled Job Seekers


The purpose of our Expo is two-fold: to increase employment opportunities for differently-abled individuals and to offer Long Island recruiters a wider selection of recruiting choices.

A recruiter’s attendance will provide an opportunity to survey a large number of applicants quickly and at no cost. The event also enables you with an opportunity to promote your brand in a large public forum and network with other employers.

The event will host numerous employers and agencies to promote their summer jobs, internships, and part time and full time opportunities. A variety of fields will be present, including retail, banking, manufacturing and technology.

The "Talent Connection" Job Expo will also offer job seekers an opportunity to discuss their skills and abilities with recruiters from key businesses on Long Island; and those businesses to reach out to a very special labor population, as well as learn valuable information at our employment workshops.

The day will commence with a Community Partnership Forum that includes success stories and an award ceremony for Top Star Employers who have hired people with disabilities. Companies will learn what to expect when hiring someone with disabilities.

Forum Keynote: Patrick Bardsley, CEO, Spectrum Designs

The forum will be followed by various workshops, including:
• Interviewing Skills
• Positive Impact of Employment
• Networking to Uncover Employment Opportunities

There is no fee to register. If you have any questions, please contact Patrice Radowitz, Public Relations Director, FREE, at 516-870-1621 or PRadowitz@FamilyRes.org.
