Connect and Learn Meet-Up

May 24, 2023    |    10:00 AM 12:00 PM EDT

We are inviting Employers and neurodiverse job seekers to join us on May 24th from 10 AM – 12 PM at West Chester University for a Connect and Learn Meet-up (C.A.L.M) This event will focus on connecting job seekers with employers who have a passion for working with neurodiverse individuals. 

How will the event work?

  • Job seekers will be stationed at individual tables, where employers will approach and get to know the job seeker. Job seekers can share their elevator pitches, resume, and/or portfolios with the employer. When the employer has provided feedback to the job seeker, they may then move to the next job seeker. 
  • West Chester University’s Career Development Center will be on-site to assist with elevator pitches and resume building. 
  • Please dress in business casual for this event.

For Employers

Employers: This is a practice event for job seekers, not a hiring event. Although, the job seekers you meet would be incredibly grateful if there were opportunities.

  1. Listen to job seekers’ presentations, and then provide feedback
  2. Provide information about your company and how someone with their skill sets could fit into your mission/organization
  3. Provide at least one tip/encouragement for job searching

For Job Seekers

To prepare for this event, please be ready to present one or more of the following:

  • Prepare a 30 second elevator pitch
  • Present digital portfolio/ portfolio/ examples of work
  • Have updated copies of resume to distribute
