Our partners have integrated disability as a full component of their overall diversity strategy, and value the intellectual capital that is found in people with disabilities. Partnership with Lime is, after all, about “being smart” – not about “being nice”. Building on the success of our campus recruitment focus, and with the full understanding that lateral recruiting is a key talent acquisition component for our partners, Lime has developed a new program to target experienced, talented people with disabilities who are seeking career advancement. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to network one-on-one with corporate execs and recruiters who are seeking to hire, and potentially interview at the event for current openings.
We know that 90% of disabilities are invisible - including ADD, dyslexia, depression, medical conditions and many others – and all individuals with disabilities are encouraged to register/apply to attend.
Check out some of the current positions and profiles of the types of opportunities available with our partners through the links below. Know that additional, and future, opportunities will be available as well:
We're also excited to announce Lime's partnership with Affinity Circles, the leading social networking platform that enables members to build and maintain personal, and most importantly, professional, connections in a dynamic, trusted online community. Our partnership includes a secure Lime inCircle community that will provide other opportunities for networking and career advancement for professionals with disabilities post-recruitment event.
