As companies increasingly seek to recruit, hire, and retain employees with disabilities, employers are recognizing challenges inherent in a standardized recruiting process, especially in the areas of applications and interviews. From online applications to some interview techniques, employers may be inadvertently screening out the very talent they are seeking. Representatives from the National Organization on Disability (NOD) and the Job Accommodation Network (JAN), as well as an individual who has navigated these processes, will help shed light on potential pitfalls and provide strategies to overcome them so employers can proactively attract and hire qualified individuals with disabilities.

This program includes captioning for the hearing impaired.
