In honor of National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) in October, ODHH and the Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation (DLLR) will host two workshops for jobseekers who are deaf, hard of hearing, or deafblind. NDEAM is a national campaign that raises awareness about disability employment issues and celebrates the many and varied contributions of America’s workers with disabilities. The theme for 2014 is “Expect. Employ. Empower.” Both workshops will include information on basic job seeking skills. During the first half of the event, we will have a panel of experts and during the second half of the event, there will be interactive workstations where job-seekers can have professionals work on their resumes, conduct mock interviews, see a display of different accomodations that apply to the workspace, and more.
