Washington Seminar Career Fair

The National Federation of the Blind will hold the 2022 Washington Seminar Career Fair virtually on Monday, February 7, 2022 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. eastern. Connect with diverse and dynamic employers and job seekers from across the United States.

This event is organized by the National Federation of the Blind Employee Committee. The NFB Employment Committee runs employment activities during the year. It is our goal to bring employers who are interested in hiring blind people in contact with blind people who are looking for employment. We do seminars and other activities to help blind job seekers develop interviewing and other skills. We also help answer employer questions about hiring blind people.  

Registration open. Register by January 25, 2022, 8 p.m. eastern time.
