AbilityLinks.org, the award-winning job opportunity website that was created in 2001 to influence disability and employment-related practices and hiring of people with disabilities, will host its week-long virtual job fair of the year, beginning June 24. All job seekers with disabilities and employers that value disability diversity are invited to participate.
Virtual job fairs have become increasingly popular with the onset of social media, explains Ken Skord, AbilityLinks program director. This is certainly a favorable time to host our popular virtual job fair to help talented individuals find jobs. The virtual job fair, which is free to both job seekers and employers, will match talented job seekers with disabilities to employment opportunities from entry level to technical and professional. The online recruiting event is accessible 24-hours a day, from Monday, June 24 through Friday, June 28. Registration for this popular event is underway and sponsorship opportunities are available.
Skord and his team offer support to job seekers, employers, and service providers by creating connections which promote a more inclusive workforce. As of April 2013, the unemployment rate for people with disabilities is 12.9%, nearly double the unemployment rate for non-disabled individuals, Skord says. Employers and service providers can positively impact this rate by participating in our virtual job fairs and networking with this talented workforce.
The online career fair eliminates costs, hardships, and additional time associated with traveling to in-person job fairs, making it convenient for employers and job seekers, notes Kathleen Yosko, President and CEO of Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital and AbilityLinks Steering Committee Co-Chair. These virtual job fairs provide access to meaningful job opportunities for people with disabilities while employers add to a deeper and more diverse applicant pool.
Exhibiting employers will receive a virtual booth, company profile page and unlimited job postings with links to their preferred online application page. Job seekers will be able to post various styles of their resume, tailoring them to specific areas of interest and submit their resumes directly to employers. Job seekers and employers will also have the opportunity to connect in live chat sessions.
AbilityLinks also offers a mentoring program which connects job seekers with an established working professional for input and encouragement in their job search. Job seekers and employers that are interested in exhibiting at or sponsoring the AbilityLinks job fair may register by clicking on the Virtual Job Fair link on http://www.AbilityLinks.org.
Every day, thousands of individuals join Americas fastest growing labor pool – Persons with Disabilities. Now in its eleventh year, AbilityLinks, the free, nationwide program of Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital, works each day to match qualified individuals to employers that embrace diversity. The program has assisted hundreds of these individuals find employment. Embrace diversity. Employ persons with disabilities.

Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 09, 2013
The Disabled Veterans National Foundation, a non-profit veterans service organization that focuses on helping men and women who serve and return home wounded or sick after defending our safety and our freedom, is gearing up for Memorial Day, announcing a photo-sharing initiative to engage individuals to share the stories of their loved ones who are veterans.
DVNF is calling this project #WeRemember. The organization is calling on its supporters to share a photo and some interesting information about the veteran with whom they are associated. They may submit the information through Facebook, or via email.
The goal of this initiative is to hear more about why people support veterans and how they have been affected by a veteran. Most people know a veteran, whether it is a friend, family member, or any other type of relationship, and this allows them to share something about that person.
Once all submissions are in by the May 23rd deadline, DVNF plans to make a digital scrapbook on its Facebook, blog and website. The most inspirational photo-story will receive its own specialized blog post.
We think this is a fun way to kick off Memorial Day, said Precilla Wilkewitz, President of DVNF. Our supporters have the chance to tell us about the veterans in their lives, giving others a chance to reflect on the magnitude of what our service members have done for us, past and present.
#WeRemember is currently underway, and DVNF is calling on all who are interested to submit a photo and story about the veteran in their life.

Columbia, SC (PRWEB) May 03, 2013
Columbia, SC personal injury lawyer Thomas K. Fowler Jr. of Peake & Fowler Law Firm, P.A., said more work needs to be done to reduce the number of teen driver fatalities in South Carolina.
Teenager driver fatalities in South Carolina doubled during the first half of 2012, compared to the same six-month period in 2011, according to South Carolinas The State on March 5.
This is a serious problem that affects everyone on the road, said Fowler, a Columbia, SC car accident lawyer who represents injured victims and families who have lost loved ones in accidents. As personal injury lawyers, we have seen how tragic accidents involving young people can be for families in South Carolina. Parents and teachers should speak with teenagers about driving safety. Teenagers need to understand the consequences of bad driving habits like texting or getting behind the wheel after drinking alcohol.
Statistics about the number of teen drivers dying in auto accidents in South Carolina and nationwide during the first six months of 2012 were compiled by the Governors Highway Safety Association. Between January 2011 and June 2011, a total of four drivers between the ages of 16 and 17 died in car accidents in South Carolina, the report states. During that same time period in 2012, there were eight deaths among drivers the same age in South Carolina. The rest of the country also experienced an increase during the same time period. Between January 2011 and June 2011, a total of 202 drivers ages 16 or 17 year olds died. During the same time in 2012, a total of 240 teenage drivers the same age died nationwide, an increase of 19 percent or 38 people.
Fowler said safety tips for young drivers include avoiding using cellphones; always wearing a seatbelt; keeping a safe distance between cars; avoiding driving during bad weather; and avoiding all distractions such as fiddling with the radio or eating while driving.
Parents also may want to place restrictions on their kids, such as when they can drive and who they can drive with. Studies show that teenage drivers can be easily distracted when their peers are with them in the car, Fowler said.
Fowler said another way to tackle the problem of teenage traffic fatalities is through education. Educators also need to be a part of the solution, he said. Teachers can talk to students about the consequences of not wearing a seatbelt or texting while driving.
Fowler said anyone injured in a serious accident, or who has lost a loved one in an accident, should contact an experienced personal injury lawyer. An accident can quickly become complicated. An attorney can help with an insurance claim so the injury victim and their family can get the full compensation they deserve, he said. In serious car accidents, a personal injury lawyer often is necessary to make sure the rights of the injured and their families are protected.
