Good Morning,


We are pleased to announce the 2018 Job Fair for the visually impaired at
the Hilton Garden Northeast in Louisville, KY!


Let me encourage you again to go online to register for the Job Fair
sponsored by the NFB Kentucky Technology Assistance Division (TAD),
Entrepreneur Division and our community partners in the Kentucky Office for
the Blind and Kentuckiana Works. TheURL is: http://www.nfbkentuckytad.info.
This fair is free to those who preregister prior to October 10th. At the
door, it will cost you $5.


Project CASE staff will be available for one-on-one career advising for any
interested conference participants. Project CASE is an innovative Career
Pathways initiative through the Kentucky Office for the Blind. This grant
has forged important relationships with employers, opening doors to job
shadowing, internships, and facility tours.


We have received commitments from the following employers: Kentucky Business
Enterprise (KBE), LC Industries, UPS, the Census Bureau, Kroger, Humana,
LG&E, Parallon, Spectrum, Work Well Industries, Mortenson Dental, Equian,
and Advantum Health. This is quite a list of employers who are excited about
meeting you!


This is your opportunity to attend a job fair that is specifically
interested in hiring you and me, the visually impaired! How many job fairs
have you attended where you knew the scales were not balanced; you knew that
the playing field was not level; you knew that the potential employer was
not very interested in hiring someone with a disability! Well, now is your
opportunity to change this!


The unemployment rate among the visually impaired is ridiculously high. This
will not change, if you sit on the sidelines. If we have employers who are
interested in hiring those of us who are visually impaired, and there are no
takers, is it really fair to place complete blame on the employer? No, it is


Please make your plans to be with us on Friday, October 12th from 9 AM to
1:30 PM at the Hilton Garden Northeast in Louisville, KY. For more
information visit us at www.nfbkentuckytad.info and look under the heading,
Announcing 2018 Job Fair. In this section, you will also find the
registration form. 


On behalf of the TAD and Entrepreneur Board of Directors, our business and
community partners, we are looking forward to visiting with you on Friday,
October 12th.





Todd E. Stephens, President

NFB Kentucky TAD
