Date:11/11/2009

GettingHired.com recognizes the one year anniversary of the launch of its employment and networking portal for people with disabilities and renews its commitment to leading the effort to reduce the employment participation gap for people with disabilities.

(PRWEB) November 11, 2009 -- GettingHired.com recently passed a milestone, the one year anniversary of the launch on November 7, 2008 of its employment and networking portal for people with disabilities. GettingHired.com connects people with disabilities to employers and jobs. GettingHired.com’s Employer partners are seeking qualified workers and they are committed to considering people with disabilities for all of their open positions.

While recognizing this milestone, GettingHired.com also notes the continued growth in unemployment, and in particular, the widening participation gap for people with disabilities. GettingHired.com affirms its continuing commitment to help lead the effort to reduce this gap.

In this first year, the vision GettingHired.com has for all members of the community has been converted into explosive growth and accomplishment. More than 35,000 people with disabilities have registered with GettingHired.com as Jobseekers; more than 95 employers, including Coca Cola, Toyota, Hancock Bank of Louisiana, Westinghouse, Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold, Southern California Edison, The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Shell Oil Company, PepsiCo, ServiceMaster, Fleming & Company Pharmaceuticals, Amerigroup and Quintiles Transnational to name a few, have partnered with GettingHired.com to post more than 21,000 open positions; and more than 600 public and private sector organizations have joined the Service Provider network. Twenty of these Service Provider organizations are Department of Veterans Affairs facilities and many more are providing employment services specifically for veterans with disabilities. In addition, GettingHired.com continues to network with over 2,300 institutions of higher education across the country, to add Advocacy Organization partners, and to receive the benefit of guidance from an active Advisory Council.

“We are privileged to have made a significant contribution in just our first year toward the goal of creating sustainable employment growth and opportunities for people with disabilities” said Thomas Capato, GettingHired.com’s CEO. “Although we recognize that we have achieved some significant milestones, we know that there are many more people with disabilities, seeking to enter or advance within the workplace, who are qualified to fill positions with employers across the country, and that employers are searching for qualified candidates to fill critical positions within their organizations. We’re taking the occasion of our one year anniversary to renew our commitment to continue to provide the best and most complete resources and connections among all these members of the community.”

The GettingHired.com vision, best expressed in the motto 'Careers & Community for People with Disabilities', is to create an online community that provides connections among and resources for all of the community members. For people with disabilities seeking employment, GettingHired.com provides, free of charge, a valuable social networking platform, career and lifestyle information, mentors, advocacy organizations, a network of Service Providers, career development resources, and of course, connections to job opportunities.

Employers utilizing GettingHired.com are provided connection with a segment of the job seeker population that has historically been underutilized yet includes people well qualified for positions across their organizations. Thanks to GettingHired.com’s RightMatch™ technology, through which employers and job seekers are matched based on specific job requirements and the job seeker’s experience and skills, and with access to GettingHired.com’s Service Provider network, employers know that they are being matched with qualified candidates and have access to resources to ensure hiring and retention success.

For Service Providers, connections are provided to individuals and employers who need the services and products these organizations provide. GettingHired.com’s array of career assistance tools are provided, free of charge, to augment the work done by these organizations to assist people in preparing for and finding work.
