Dear Job seeker with a disability,
Become more than just piece a paper to employers!

 Who: Job ready individuals, who want to meet local businesses, work on their networking skills and practice their interviewing technique.

 When: November 21, 2013 – 2:00 p.m.- 4:00 p.m.

 Where: Selected participants will be informed of the location

 Why: So you can become gainfully employed.

 How? Please read this carefully – Participation in Live Resume is a competitive process. There are twenty spots for job seekers.  Interested individuals with disabilities need to submit their resumes and what type of job you’re are looking for to Tiana Tozer no later than November 8, 2013. Depending on the number of resumes, individuals may be asked to provide additional information.

 Resumes and additional information, if requested, will be reviewed and selected candidates will be asked to come in for a pre-interview at the Incight office in downtown Portland. Pre-screening interviews will take place starting November 1 and continue through November 13.
