Disability Mentoring Day (DMD) is a large-scale national effort to promote career development for individuals with disabilities through hands- on career exploration and ongoing mentoring relationships. Job seekers (mentees) are paired with a career professional (mentors) from one of the companies listed below.
• Learn what it means to work in that company, field or occupation
• Observe a typical work day
• Identify necessary skills
• Learn about possible internships or employment prospects
While this is a one-day event, mentors and mentees are encouraged to stay in touch after the event.
Disability Mentoring Day (DMD) is a one day event, located at the company where you are matched. DMD is NOT a job interview or an internship. DMD IS a chance to experience what it would be like to work in your field of interest/study, as well as a great opportunity to network, get a sense of the culture and environment, and build a relationship with a professional.
Date of DMD: June 4, 2020
Location will be dependent on which company you are matched with for the day.
Applications currently being accepted. There is a possibility that not everyone will be matched. However, if you are not selected you will be placed on a wait list.
