Job Fair for People with Disabilities Connects Job Seekers & Employers

The first step in any job search is learning what the opportunities are. For people with disabilities, including those with hearing or visual impairments, getting to that initial conversation can seem like an insurmountable hurdle.

Aiming to connect job seekers with employers who have job openings, IOCC held a job fair in Amman, Jordan, specifically for people with impairments and disabilities. Approximately 300 job seekers had a chance to meet and talk with representatives of employers and agencies in several sectors looking to fill vacancies across various skillsets and sectors.

The project, part of a two-year IOCC initiative serving Jordanian and Syrian people with disabilities, is funded by the Austrian Development Cooperation and Diakonie Austria. In parallel with job fairs like this one, IOCC also offers employability skills classes at its Livelihoods Resource Center in Amman and vocational training through a local center. IOCC works to raise awareness among communities and families about opportunities and integration for people with disabilities.

Taken together, all these offerings help ensure that people living with a disability or impairment are able to continue pursuing their career and life goals.
