The second annual event will provide employment opportunities for job seekers with disabilities
Gloucester County will hold its second annual Disability Employment Job Fair and Resource Event on Friday, July 14, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Gloucester County Government Services Building, Clayton Complex.
“The goal of the Disability Job Fair is to open more doors to employment opportunities for job seekers with disabilities,” Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger said.
“We encourage all potential employers to embrace diversity as they seek to fill positions by considering the talents of all workers, including those with disabilities,” said Freeholder Jim Jefferson, liaison to the Department of Health and Human Services.
To ensure potential job seekers are prepared for the job fair, free workshops for the participants were held at the Gloucester County Adult Center for Transition in Sewell. If you were unable to attend any of the workshops, please call the American Job Center and ask to speak to a representative from Division of Vocational and Rehabilitation Services at (856) 384–3730.
“We are committed to providing resources and opportunities to individuals with disabilities so they can meet employers with job openings and gain more insight on what type of employment opportunities are available to them,” said Freeholder Heather Simmons, liaison to Economic Development.
