Dear Future Blind Employees:

Below is a list of the employers coming to the NFB National Career 
Fair, which is on Monday, July 8 from 1-3 p.m., with individual 
interviews from 3:30 to 5 p.m. We are currently working to sign up 
other employers, including Kellogg, the CIA, and Oracle. About one 
week before the career fair, we will send a final list of employers 
on NFBNET. But the lists will not contain contact information.

If you want contact information for the employers, you must register 
If you do that, we will be able to send you that information, 
including periodic updates as the employer list grows. You will be 
able to contact them directly, send them your resume, and make 
arrangements to meet them at the career fair. We plan to do the first 
mailing to you next week, so hurry and sign up!

You must register online to attend the career fair. While we will 
have a few people at the convention to help you register, we expect 
many job seekers and strongly suggest you ensure your registration by 
registering now. And our new system makes it easy for you to sign up. 
You can do it on your smartphone.

Can you get employer contact information if you don't plan to attend 
the career fair? No, since the employers registered specifically for 
the career fair, not at this time. After the fair, we'll see if they 
want to accept applications year round, and if so, we may be able to 
develop a system to do that.  But it won't work as well as face to 
face contacts. So if you can come, even for one hour, please do.

Another advantage of registering for the career fair is that it helps 
us build a database of blind job seekers we can refer to employers 
who are looking for people to hire. And next year, all you will have 
to do is update your information. No muss, no fuss.

So please go to 
and sign up now.  Here's the current employer list:
