Join Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD) on August 20, at 10 AM for a free training to learn best practices to foster a hiring process that is accessible and inclusive for candidates with disabilities. The training includes discussion on the recruitment phase, pre-employment interviewing and testing, and the onboarding process.

  • Learn ways to make components of the hiring process accessible for candidates with disabilities.
  • Learn the two-part process for asking questions and administering tests in the pre-employment phase of hiring.

Questions and answers are facilitated throughout the presentation.

The training will be hosted by OOD’s Worksite Accessibility Specialist Julie Wood, OT R/L, and Business Relations Specialist Kelly Jordan.
