Hire Disability Solutions is pleased to announce that its Global Veterans Career Expo will be held in New York City on May 24. Veterans with disabilities are invited to pre-register for and attend the historic Expo, which is being held in partnership with The New York Times Company, Veterans Across America and the New York City Business Leadership Network (NYCBLN).

More than 7,000 qualified disabled Veterans are expected to attend, and will participate in workshops that include mentorship programs; financial counseling; career counseling; small business start-ups; and resume writing.

Companies are being offered a unique opportunity to sponsor the Global Veterans Career Expo or become an exhibitor. Unlike other career fairs (or conferences), our sponsorships include wide-reaching advertising in The New York Times. On Sunday, May 22, The New York Times will feature a special edition on Veterans & Employment that will be distributed to over 20 million subscribers (4 million print readers; 16 million online viewers) — and sponsors can receive an advertorial placement.

The event doesn’t end at the Expo, either. It  will also be hosted live virtually (and for two weeks following the Expo) at military bases across the globe. Also, Hire Disability Solutions is ensuring that the Expo is part of  an overall collaborative effort by corporations and the community to support the young men and women returning home by assisting with their transition back to civilian life. To that end, Hire Disability Solutions will provide various ‘follow-along’ support services to corporations that sponsor or exhibit at the Expo to assist with their new hires.

Hire Disability Solutions is a certified disabled owned company promoting the inclusion of people with disabilities into mainstream employment. We’re so thrilled to be working with our partners on this exciting, groundbreaking event and sharing our passion with companies that want to hire veterans with disabilities in the workplace.

For sponsorship and exhibitor information, please contact Jeff Klare at jklare@hireds.com or Noritza Perito at nperito@hireds.com or call 845-624-3278. We are offering a 15% discount for clients of Hire Disability Solutions, as well as for corporate members of the NYCBLN.

And if you’re a veteran with a disability, remember to sign up for the Expo today!
