Incight’s employment program is different from other programs for job seekers with disabilities in that it focuses on empowerment, skills building, and networking.

Large organizations such as Oregon Health & Science University, the State of Oregon, NW Natural, Lowe’s, US Forest Service, FedEx, Wells Fargo and Comcast attend our events to recruit talent, give insider feedback and provide one-on-one interaction with candidates to help them succeed in the job search.
 
 Employment program services and events are available to any job seeker with a documented disability, no matter your age.

MEET BUSINESS

Meet Business is an event that brings together representatives from a specific industry, such as health care, natural resources, government, manufacturing, technology, etc., to educate job seekers about that particular industry and the types of jobs within the industry. These events last about three hours; there are presentations from the employers during the first 45 to 60 minutes, followed by two hours of networking for you to speak with employers one-on-one about opportunities they may have for you at their company.

LIVE RESUME

Live Resume is an opportunity for you to become more than a piece of paper to employers. You will give a three minute verbal presentation on your experiences and credentials in person to an audience of recruiters with a group of about 20 other job seekers. Incight staff will help you prepare your resume and presentation during a practice session before the event. After all of the candidates have presented, there is a forty-five minute networking session so you can speak to any of the employers in the room who you think you may be interested in working with.

Participating in Live Resume is a 3-Step Process:

1. Interested job seekers submit their resume and set up a pre-screening one-on-one interview with Incight staff where they share their skills, discuss their experience, and get feedback on their resume.

2. Selected candidates participate in a two-hour group practice session where they present their three minute elevator pitch to other participants and Incight staff for feedback.

3. The Live Resume event takes place in a large conference room with all candidates and approximately 20 employers. Each job seeker has up to three minutes to present their skills and experience. After the presentations, candidates have the opportunity to meet and talk with employers one-on-one.

By participating in Live Resume, you will gain resume feedback, presentation practice, and the opportunity to meet 15 to 20 employers.
