In recognition of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, the Pennsylvania State Civil Service Commission is proud to partner once again with the Governor’s Cabinet for People with Disabilities and the Office of Administration to provide our third annual “Disability Employment Outreach Day” to guide individuals with disabilities in their search for Commonwealth employment. Mark your calendars and plan to attend on Wednesday, October 7, 2015 at the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission Headquarters, 1601 Elmerton Avenue, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Join us for employment presentations at 9:00 a.m. or 1:00 p.m. The same information will be offered at each session, so please choose the one that best suits your schedule.

This is an informational event only. No interviews or hiring will take place. Attendees will learn about the Civil Service application, testing, and hiring processes, and other available accommodations and services. Recruitment specialists will also be available following each presentation to give personalized assistance to individuals who are interested in learning more about specific employment opportunities for which they may qualify. Individuals who would like this service should bring an up-to-date resume. Representatives from the Pennsylvania Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR) will also be on site. OVR’s mission is to help Pennsylvanians with disabilities find and maintain employment.

All individuals with disabilities are welcome to participate. ASL services will be provided. Please contact the Pennsylvania State Civil Service Commission at (717) 787-6127 by September 21 to request other accommodations for this event.

Please share this e-mail and the attached flyer with anyone in your network who may know of individuals who could benefit from participating in this event. Thank you very much for any assistance you can provide.

Directions: Turn at the traffic light at the intersection of Elmerton Avenue and State Farm Road. The Fish and Boat Commission will be just ahead on the left.

We look forward to seeing you on October 7!
