2nd Annual Disability Mentoring Day


2nd Annual Disability Mentoring Day
Wednesday, April 12, 2017
Work Without Limits is excited to partner with the American Association of People with Disabilities on the 2nd AnnualĀ  Massachusetts Disability Mentoring Day (DMD)!
Applications for job seekers with disabilities (aka Mentees) can be found here or at http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/3290998/fdc79ec691ae.
Participating Employers include:
  • MA Attorney General’s Office

Through DMD, Mentees are paired with a career professional (aka Mentors) at one of the above companies to learn what it means to work in that company, field or occupation; observe a typical work day; identify necessary skills; and learn about possible internships or employment prospects. While DMD is a one-day event, mentors and mentees are encouraged to stay in touch after the event. Mentoring is invaluable and beneficial for both the mentor and student, advancing career development and personal growth.
