1st Virtual Job Fair a Huge Success! 

Dear Friends,

On October 30th, in honor of October being “Disability Employment Awareness Month,” Employment Options held its 1st ever Virtual Job Fair, and what a success it was!  With over 250 job seekers registered, we were able to connect them with legitimate national employers who had job openings!  We wanted to thank all those who registered and participated on our special day!

We had a great line-up of national employers that included America Support, Bender Consulting, Convergys, DMD Group, New Corp, Pearl Interactive and Sutherland! A representative from Maximus was also in attendance to answer questions about the many benefits of the free Ticket to Work program.

Our employers and job seekers were pleased with the format and are already asking when our next job fair will be!  Be sure you have clicked the ‘Like’ button on our NEW Facebook fan pageso you can continue to receive future updates and tips!

We have received numerous phone calls and e-mails about the job fair and how helpful it has been.

Donna R from Colorado said, “Thank you so much for a wonderful experience.  I was able to connect with 2 employers through the chat room.  A virtual job fair was the first for me and I had not done much as far as using chat rooms.  Your instructions were clear and easy to use. Thanks again” and

Debra C from Texas said, “I just wanted to inform you that I attended the Job Fair on Oct. 30 and I must say that I was very excited. I emailed a copy of my resume to Bender Consulting Services, Inc. Thank you for having the job fair.”
