Monthly Job Match Conference Calls

The purpose of the call is to provide employers and service providers with an opportunity to share information regarding current and/or upcoming available jobs and for service providers to highlight potential candidates.  The goal is to match job seekers to current and/or upcoming opportunities.  In addition, the call will provide both parties the opportunity to ask questions related to employment and to follow up on any outstanding potential matches.

Learning and Networking Events

These events help to provide awareness, information and a forum to connect employers with talented job seekers with disabilities.  Simultaneously, employers participate in a workshop that focuses on the topic of disability, while job seekers participate in a workshop focused on pre-employment tips and tactics.  The two groups then come together for a networking event with a goal of sharing information and making connections.

Annual Conference

The annual conferences provide opportunities for employers, service providers and community stakeholders to learn, share knowledge and network. The goal of the conference is to create a greater community awareness of the talents and availability of people with disabilities as potential employees and to assist employers in seeing the value of extending their talent pool to include people with disabilities.  Conferences are held in the spring.

Customized Recruitment Events

EARN develops customized recruitment events to meet employers’ talent needs, to provide expert knowledge and to connect employers with a qualified talent pool of job seekers with disabilities. Examples of these of events include mock interview sessions, career fairs, learning sessions and other activities.
