National Disability Employment Awareness Month to be Marked by Disability Employment Outreach Day in PA
In recognition of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, the Pennsylvania State Civil Service Commission will partner once again with the Governor’s Cabinet for People with Disabilities and the Office of Administration in the third annual “Disability Employment Outreach Day” to guide individuals with disabilities in their search for Commonwealth employment.
Mark your calendars and plan to attend on Wednesday, October 7, 2015, at the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission Headquarters, 1601 Elmerton Avenue, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Employment presentations will be held at 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m (The same information will be offered at each session, so please choose the one that best suits your schedule).
Attendees will learn about the Civil Service application, testing, and hiring processes, and other available accommodations and services. Recruitment specialists will also be available following each presentation to give personalized assistance to individuals who are interested in learning more about specific employment opportunities for which they may qualify. Individuals who would like this service should bring an up-to-date resume. Representatives from the Pennsylvania Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR) will also be on site. OVR’s mission is to help Pennsylvanians with disabilities find and maintain employment.
All individuals with disabilities are welcome to participate. ASL services will be provided. Please contact the Pennsylvania State Civil Service Commission at (717) 787-6127 by September 21 to request other accommodations for this event.
This is an informational event only. No interviews or hiring will take place.
