I thought I would send out this preliminary note about this year's 
Employment Seminar at the NFB Convention in Dallas.  As usual, it 
will be on Saturday June 30, but this year it will run from 8:30 a.m. 
to 12:30 p.m.  We have two agenda items already scheduled.

Brenda Mosby, of the Colorado Center for the Blind will present a 
mini-seminar on how to get a job in the federal government: "Is a 
federal job in your future? Find out!".  She's going to bring people 
from the federal government to explain how the Schedule A process 
works.  And yes, they are still hiring.

Robert Leslie Newman is going to talk about "Where The Blind Work', 
the database of employed blind mentors that the Writers Division 
developed.  It's a good career exploration and blind jobseeker 
resource, and we need to make sure more people use it.

There will also be the usual announcements and job exchange, in which 
people who know of job vacancies and people who are looking for jobs 
can network with each other.

Well, that's enough for now.  We're going to have a committee 
teleconference, which will no doubt generate additional agenda 
items.  For those of you who want to know, we will once again be 
recording the seminar, which will be available for free on the NFB 
website.  But if you can come, please do, because it's hard to ask 
questions of a recording.
