Last week, members of The Execu|Search Group’s Office Support division based in our Hartford, CT office, attended Connecticut Department of Labor’s DiverseAbility Career Fair.
With over 50 companies in attendance, the career fair gave job seekers – particularly those with disabilities – the opportunity to receive feedback on their resumes, attend a workshop on using LinkedIn in their job searches, and network and connect with prospective employers about job opportunities.
“As a fairly new division in the Hartford area, this event not only helped us build connections with job seekers and organizations in the region, but also served as a nice reminder to embrace differences,” says Genna Samander, a Staffing Manager within the Hartford office’s Office Support division. “Every job seeker is unique and has something they can bring to the table. In today’s evolving job market, it’s important for employers and job seekers alike to celebrate these differences because having a diverse skillset at your disposal is what is going to help you remain competitive.”
