Last year President Obama announced several initiatives to increase the employment of people with disabilities in the federal workforce. In support of this goal, on April 26, 2010 the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and the Department of Labor (DOL) Office of Disability Employment Policy, along with many other federal agencies, will host a day-long, invitation only Federal Hiring Event for People with Disabilities in Washington, DC. Representatives from federal agencies will be reviewing resumes prior to this event, and inviting prospective job candidates for interviews.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE?
Review the Hiring Event information, as well as the Individuals with Disabilities page, or Veterans page on www.USAJOBS.gov. You must submit your resume to the following email address: Hiringevent@opm.gov no later than March 24, 2010. Documentation supporting your disability (e.g., proof of disability and job readiness certification letters) and/or veteran’s status (e.g., VA letter and DD-214) can be provided with your resume, or at the time you are interviewed. [Note: To ensure the hiring process moves quickly and to expedite the agency’s ability to make tentative offers, you are strongly encouraged to submit your supporting documentation along with your resume.]
