The Project SEARCH program prepares interns with intellectual/developmental disabilities for competitive employment. Through a series of job placements, these interns gain a variety of skills and knowledge to prepare them for entering the workforce. At the end of each program cycle, interns have the opportunity to pitch themselves to potential employers through a Reverse Job Fair. Due to the pandemic, the Reverse Job Fair has gone virtual with an innovative approach that allows employers to get to know the candidates without meeting face-to-face.
Each intern has prepared a video resume that showcases their skills in action as well as interviews with their supervisors. Interested employers can set up an interview online through the event. This no cost event is a great place to find long-term employees for typically high turnover, entry level positions, as well as making your workplace a more diverse and inclusive environment.
