Launched in 2018, ABILITY Job Fair established itself as a system for accessible recruitment and communication needs. Since that time, it has grown as a proven resource for businesses, government agencies and higher education that supports Section 503, Section 508 and EEOC requirements.
As a direct result of COVID-19, telework has become the norm and workflow has been disrupted. Distance has become the new expectation. ABILITY Job Fair provides solutions for companies leveraging recruitment at a distance, allowing companies to continue to build their talent pipeline even if travel restrictions are being issued around the world.
Using the ABILITY Job Fair system, recruiters conduct consecutive, face-to-face meetings with potential candidates, maximizing their time and reducing the need for in-person job fairs. During this online event, recruiters receive a steady stream of candidates in queues waiting to meet with them from desktop, tablet or smartphone devices. Built with accessibility and ADA in mind, this technology breaks down communication barriers.
ABILITY Job Fair’s accessible video-based technology includes real-time speech (live captioning), screen reader compatibility for people who are blind, SMS messaging, document transfer capability, and sign language interpreter video connections for people who are deaf ABILITY Job Fair has been pleased to have worked with some of the largest companies and government departments such as Google, Wells Fargo, Facebook, Aetna, Waste Management, FBI, NIH, and the IRS all choosing to lean into this advanced technology.
ABILITY Job Fair now offers SCORE (Scalable Compliant Online Recruitment Events). Companies can private label fully interactive and accessible job fairs for individual employer recruiting needs. Since the system is accessible, it mitigates potential compliance and ADA concerns during career fairs.
SCORE provides all the accessibility and job fair features of ABILITY Job Fair for a broader talent base of job seekers with and without disabilities. As typical with accessibility advancements, the SCORE job fair system has broader benefits and is accessible for all.
