Event description
WeCo is hosting a job fair and workshop focusing on professionals who live with disabilities and also our approach to disability employment

About this Event

Job Seekers Panel

Applying for the job you want and living with a disability can feel intimidating. As a company built and staffed largely by professionals who live with disabilities, the Staff and Testers at WeCo understand this. We live it every day.

Our job seekers event will offer a panel discussion led by the WeCo staff and testers who will share their experience in seeking employment and how they became "the right talent" in their careers. This panel will also include WeCo managers sharing what they look for in candidates.

You will take away:

  • Tips on preparing for interviews
  • Strategies on how to showcase your talents and experiences
  • Tips on working with employers who are new to disability employment
  • Resource options
  • and much more.

Job Seekers Panel will be available for the Q&A session starting at 3:15pm and will run throughout the event.

Employer Workshop

By the year 2030, 20% of Americans will be age 65 or older. Coupled with historically low fertility rates, the US is on the cusp of experiencing one of the largest labor shortages in our country’s history.

Employing more talented individuals who live with disabilities could help us meet the demand for qualified workers in a shrinking workforce.

Our employer education event will offer information and guidance to why disability employment is not only the answer, it is a reality.

WeCo President/Founder, Lynn Wehrman will share:

  • How the company has learned the ropes of how accommodations work
  • How to locate the right candidates who live with disabilities
  • How to navigate the legal risk of disability employment and accommodation
  • and more.

You will take away not only practical knowledge and inspiration, but several free tools and resources standing at the ready to help you start your own disability employment journey.

Employer Workshop led by Lynn Wehrman will begin at 5:00pm.
