WHEATON, Ill., Sept. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AbilityLinks.org, the job opportunity website for persons with disabilities and inclusive employers, will be hosting a week-long virtual job fair in October.
October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month, and AbilityLinks is honoring NDEAM by hosting their virtual job fair October 12th through the 16th. This week-long online recruiting event will be accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and is free to both job seekers and employers. Opportunities are available for employers to become Featured Employers or for non-exhibiting companies to sponsor the event. Further information is available online.
Exhibiting employers will receive a virtual booth, company profile page and unlimited job postings with links to their preferred online application page, as well as an opportunity to participate in a webinar to showcase their company and job openings. Job seekers will be able to post various styles of their resume, tailoring them to specific areas of interest, listen to employer webinars to learn more about available opportunities, and submit their resumes directly to employers. Because the career fair is online, it's convenient for both employers and job seekers to attend by eliminating any costs, hardships and additional time associated with traveling to in-person job fairs.
"I've always felt that it's not enough to just provide physical rehabilitation and education to persons with disabilities, but to ensure access to meaningful job opportunities as well," notes Kathleen Yosko, President & CEO, Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital and AbilityLinks Steering Committee Co-Chair. "That's why I am excited about this event. It's just another way that AbilityLinks is working to connect individuals with disabilities with businesses who have open positions to fill."
Job seekers and employers that are interested in exhibiting at or sponsoring the AbilityLinks job fair may register by clicking on the Virtual Job Fair link on www.AbilityLinks.org or may call 630/909-7440 for more information.

AbilityLinks, a free, nationwide program of Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital, works each day to match qualified individuals to employers that embrace diversity.
