The Ticket to Work program will host its next Virtual Job Fair on March 16, 2016, from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET.
The job fair is sponsored by Social Security and will connect you to companies that work with the government. These companies have job openings for individuals with many different skill and experience levels and are particularly interested in hiring qualified people with disabilities.
The participating employers will have job openings in one or more of the following locations: New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Washington DC, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and Puerto Rico.
