The Texas HireAbility campaign aims to connect job seekers with disabilities with employers and to raise awareness about the benefits of hiring people with disabilities. The campaign is coordinated by the Texas Workforce Commission, the Texas Governor’s Committee on People with Disabilities, and Texas Workforce Solutions. Texas HireAbility coincides with National Disability Employment Awareness Month, which is held annually in October.

Events for Job Seekers

Part of the Texas HireAbility campaign includes job fairs and career resource events that are coordinated by local workforce development boards. Job seekers with disabilities who attend an event may have an opportunity to land a job or learn skills that could help them land a job. If you attend an event, you could connect with employers who are hiring, learn about their business, and even interview for a job. Events will also feature training sessions on interviewing for jobs, resume writing, and networking. Throughout October, events will be held in various locations across Texas. To find an event in your area, visit the Texas HireAbility Events webpage.

Resources for Employers

Texas HireAbility also provides resources for employers. Resources illustrate the benefits of hiring people with disabilities and provide guidance for how to include people with disabilities in the workplace. Some of the resources are listed below.
