Attend the Ticket to Work Virtual Job Fair August 24, 2016

The Ticket to Work program will host its next online Virtual Job Fair on August 24, 2016, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET. This is a national event sponsored by Social Security. The event will connect job seekers to companies that work with the government. These companies have job openings for persons with many different skill and experience levels. They are particularly interested in hiring qualified people with disabilities.

Register for the Job Fair!
At the job fair, participants can communicate with job recruiters online in chat forums and by using one-on-one messages. They can also visit virtual resource booths to ask questions about job accommodations, Social Security work incentives, and legal issues that can create barriers to work for people with disabilities.

You should register if:
•  You are a Ticket to Work participant.
•  You are using your Ticket to get services from an approved Employment Network (EN) or your State Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) agency.
•  You are ready to work.

How to register:

•  Fill out the consent form found at www.choosework.net/vjfconsent.
•  Give the form to your EN or State VR agency to keep on file.
•  Register at https://vts.inxpo.com/Launch/QReg.htm?ShowKey=32842.

Once we verify your eligibility to participate, we will confirm your registration. If you have participated in a past Virtual Job Fair, you still need to sign a new consent form and register.
