NFB National Career Fair

The NFB National Career Fair is the largest job fair for blind and low-vision job seekers anywhere in the world. More than 300 diverse job seekers and over forty employers from across the country attend this recruitment event every year.

Attendees

If you are attending our national convention, we encourage you to participate in the jobs track and learn about the many occupations and companies that could benefit from your skills and talents. It is also the perfect opportunity to network and meet others who are involved in your field. You must register to attend the NFB National Career Fair. Please contact Dick Davis at 612-872-0100 or ddavis@blindinc.org for more information.

Employers

The NFB National Career Fair is a great place to be if you want to hire capable employees. NFB job seekers are skilled, and if you don’t know how capable blind people can be, this is a great place to learn. Employers collect stacks of résumés and often find exactly the right fit. Companies and organizations participating in the NFB National Career Fair will be listed in the employer list that is made available to each attendee. There is no cost to participate, and organizations will be given one table at the event. Convention sponsors receive prime placement and special recognition. To register your company to connect with job seekers, please fill out the NFB National Career Fair employer registration form.
