Announcement: Federal Hiring Event for People with Disabilities on April 26, 2010

via USAJOBS site:

The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and the U. S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) are sponsoring a historic day-long Federal Hiring Event for People with Disabilities. Representatives from many agencies will be reviewing resumes prior to the event, and inviting prospective candidates for interviews.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE?
Review the Hiring Event information, as well as the Individuals with Disabilities page, or Veterans page on USAJOBS.gov. You must submit your resume to the following email address: Hiringevent@opm.gov. Documentation supporting your disability (e.g., proof of disability and job readiness certification letters) and/or veteran’s status (e.g., VA letter and DD-214) can be provided with your resume, or at the time you are interviewed. [Note: To ensure the hiring process moves quickly and to expedite the agency's ability to make tentative offers, you are strongly encouraged to submit your supporting documentation along with your resume.]

Disabled veterans with less than a 30% rating or with non-service connected disabilities are encouraged to submit their resumes, along with proof of disability and job readiness.

If you need assistance submitting your resume or have any questions regarding this Event, including the type of documentation required please forward your inquiry to the following email address: Hiringevent@opm.gov.

Thank you - I am applying for US federal jobs as a citizen already and will use this to try and find out if there are any within my level of accomodation in the area.
