Make sure that any interview training that you do includes training on the
Performance Based Interview, which has become the standard for government
and corporate employment.

Hi Everybody,

The Employment Committee appointments have not come through yet, although I
expect them any day now.  To keep things moving, I have sketched out some
plans for the 2013 Job Seekers Seminar, which will be held on Monday, July
1 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the NFB national convention.  This year we
will have a morning seminar and an afternoon job fair.  The morning will be
taken up with job seeking skills training, including interviewing.  During
the afternoon, there will be employers present to interview people who are
looking for jobs.  So people will be able to use the morning session to
prepare for afternoon interviews.

*Notice to Employers:*

Last year we had many employers come to the Employment Committee meeting,
which is later in the week, to advertise job vacancies.  If you are one of
those employers, I hope you will be able to come to the job fair.  There is
no charge to employers or jobseekers to participate in it.  We will have a
nice table for you to use for interviews.  Interested employers should
e-mail me at ddavis at blindinc.org.  I will get you more information as it
becomes available.

*Notice to Presenters:*

There are a number of organizations that have presented at the Job Seekers
Seminar in the past.  Given the job seeking skills training focus of this
year’s employment seminar, some of those presentations may not fit the
agenda.  If they don’t, you will still be able to present at the Employment
Committee meeting later in the week.  Please let me know if you feel your
presentation would fit the seminar, or if you would like space on the
committee meeting agenda.  Again, e-mail me at ddavis at blindinc.org.

I am filling in for a vacant staff position right now, so my office time is
at a premium.  E-mail works best for me because I can respond after hours.
If you call me, it will probably be several days before I can get back to


Dick Davis, Chair

NFB Employment Committee
