In recognition of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, the Pennsylvania State Civil Service Commission will host its third annual “Disability Employment Outreach Day” to guide individuals with disabilities in their search for Commonwealth employment. It will take place Wednesday, October 7, 2015, at the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission Headquarters, 1601 Elmerton Avenue, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Employment presentations will begin at 9 a.m. or 1 p.m. The same information will be offered at each session.
This is an informational event only. No interviews or hiring will take place. Attendees will learn about the Civil Service application, testing, and hiring processes, and other available accommodations and services. Recruitment specialists will also be available following each presentation to give personalized assistance to individuals who are interested in learning more about specific employment opportunities for which they may qualify. Individuals who would like this service should bring an up-to-date resume.
Representatives from the Pennsylvania Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR) will also be on site.
All individuals with disabilities are welcome to participate. ASL services will be provided. Please contact the Pennsylvania State Civil Service Commission at 717-787-6127 by September 21 to request other accommodations.
