Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to give all you jobseekers some 
information that will help you navigate from now 
through our convention successfully.  First of 
all, here is a list of the Employment Committee events:
·         Job Seeker Seminar, Monday 
July 10, 12:30-4:00 pm, Sebastian I-2
·         Etiquette Dinner presented by 
the Employment Committee, Monday July 10, 5:30 
pm, Café Osceola, Rosen Shingle Creek (now full, 
taking backup registrations only)
·         National Job Fair, Tuesday 
July 11, 9:30-11:30 am, Panzacola Ballroom F3 and F4
·         NFB Employment Committee 
Meeting, Thursday July 13, 7:00-9:00 pm, Wekiwa 10
·         Upward Mobility Seminar, 
Friday July 14, 7:00-9:30 pm, Wekiwa 4
You must pre-register or register to attend the 
Job Fair this year.  You may pre-register by 
completing the Pre-registration form under 
Convention Events at our Employment Committee 
website, which is 
attaching your resume, and sending it to Suzanne 
Turner (instructions are on the 
form).  Pre-registrants are still eligible to 
get their resumes fixed by the Resume 
Doctors.  If you want this done, send a note 
saying you want your resume doctored.  A doctor 
will get back to you.  Because of the short time 
frame, we are splitting the resumes between the 
doctors.  If you want your resume doctored, the deadline is June 30.Â
The deadline for pre-registration is July 3; 
after that you will need to register for the Job 
Fair at the convention. There will be two times 
you can register for the Job Fair: Monday, July 
10 from 12:30 to 4:00 pm outside the Job Seeker 
Seminar, and Tuesday July 11 from 8:30 to 11:30 
outside the Job Fair.  Remember, you must 
register before you can enter the Job Fair - no 
exceptions! Â See one of my earlier emails for 
the reason why.  There is no registration needed 
for any of our other events except for the 
Etiquette Dinner, which is now full.Â
The list of Job Fair Employers is at 
under Convention Events. It will be updated at 
least weekly. Right now we have about 25 
employers, and keep adding about one a day. If 
you are not coming to the Job Fair, please do not 
contact them until after the convention.  And 
yes, we are still accepting applications from 
employers.  If you know of an employer who wants 
to come, have them contact me at 
<mailto:ddavis at blindinc.org>ddavis at blindinc.org, 
or call me at 612-872-0100, ext. 202.Â
We recommend that you dress up for all of our 
events, as there will be employers present at all 
of them, and you will never get a second chance 
to make a good first impression.  Last year we 
had some people show up at the Job Fair looking 
like they had just come from the pool. That’s a 
job killer. If anyone shows up inappropriately 
dressed this year, as in t-shirt and hat, 
flip-flops, shorts, etc. we will give them the 
opportunity to go back to their room and dress 
appropriately.  Remember, your personal appearance reflects on all of us.Â
If you need additional information, email me at 
<mailto:ddavis at blindinc.org>ddavis at blindinc.org 
or call me at 612-872-0100, ext. 202.Â
Thank you all,
Dick Davis, Chair
NFB Employment Committee
