Have you ever wished you could sit down with an employer before applying for a job and just let them know your story? Do you feel like you cannot get past the online job application? If so, consider attending the Career Opportunities for Students with Disabilities (COSD) FULL ACCESS Student Summit on April 10-11, 2015 in Atlanta, GA!

The COSD FULL ACCESS Student Summit brings 60 select college sophomores, juniors, seniors, and recent graduates with disabilities to meet with representatives from 11 top U.S. companies to discuss career employment for individuals with disabilities. The event is open to all college students (and recent graduates with disabilities) at the sophomore level and above, from any college or university and is at no charge to student attendees.

The application deadline is March 18, 2015.

The COSD FULL ACCESS Student Summit is not a job fair, but an opportunity to discuss with employers what they are seeking from potential candidates and how you can best prepare for the application. These employers are committed to hiring individuals with disabilities, and can act as an excellent network for your career search endeavors. While this is not a job fair, past attendees of the Summit have secured internships and full-time employment with companies represented at the Summit!

Transportation to the Summit is the financial responsibility of the attendee, but COSD pays for food and lodging. Make an investment in yourself and in your future! Students who have attended past summits commented that the COSD FULL ACCESS Student Summit opened their eyes to the many employers who are seeking to hire individuals with disabilities, and they left feeling more confident about their career search than ever before.
