The Washington Seminar Career Fair is a great place to hire capable employees and network with potential employers.
Washington Seminar is an annual event of the National Federation of the Blind that more than five hundred people—including many students—from fifty states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico attend to take our message of equal opportunity for the blind to Capitol Hill. The Washington Seminar Career Fair takes place on the first day of Washington Seminar.
