Talent Connection Job Expo 2018

The day began with a Community Partnership Forum which included keynote speakers, John and Mark Cronin, co-founders of John’s Crazy Socks.  The words of inspiration continued as employment success stories were shared by differently-abled job seekers and concluded with the presentation of several “Top Star” employer awards.

Employment workshops offered throughout the morning included Interviewing Techniques, The Positive Impact of Employment, and Job Development in the 21st century.  These workshops offered valuable information for job seekers with a variety of skills and abilities.

Special thanks to Supervisor Joseph Saladino for acknowledging DDI’s Vocational Program and to The Nature’s Bounty Co. for their support in employing and inspiring the people we support.
