What: Live Resume is an excellent and unique opportunity for job seekers with disabilities to meet and network with local employers in an intimate and supportive environment. During the main event, participants have up to three minutes to verbally present their "Live Resume" to a room full of recruiters and hiring managers. After the presentations, there is an hour of networking with the employers. Leading up to the main event, participants must be available for a practice session where they will have the opportunity to work on their "Live Resume" pitch and learn how to best communicate their skills and abilities.
