October is National Disabilities Employment Awareness Month--Volunteer Opportunity

Again this year, SVSHRM will be sponsoring a series of presentations to employees at Friendship Industries.Friendship Industries develops and maintains work and training opportunities for adults with disabilities. SVSHRM has partnered with Friendship Industries to present a series of ½ hour training sessions on Thursdays in October as part of SVSHRM’s outreach, education, and workforce readiness initiatives. We’re looking for volunteers to present “Lunch Box Learning” sessions to be held at Friendship Industries at 801 Friendship Drive in Harrisonburg.

Topics address the basics for first time and re-entry job seekers:

  • ·        October 2:           The Importance of Properly Completing a Job Application
  • ·        October 9:           Addressing a Criminal History and Other Breaks in Employment
  • ·        October 16:        Making a Good Employment Impression – Dressing for Interviews and Work
  • ·        October 23:        Making a Good Employment Impression – What Your Actions Tell Other About You
  • ·        October 30:        How Attitude, Punctuality, and Reliability Affect Your Interview and Your Employment

Contact Ruairi Walsh ( Friendship Industries, 540/434-9586 or ruairiwalsh@friendship-industries.com) to choose a topic.

This volunteer opportunity carries 1 HRCI credit: 1/2 hour for the presentation itself and 1/2 hour for preparation time and lunch will be provided.
