The OIB-TAC wants to support your effort to attract and retain qualified staff. Exploring the untapped resource of area colleges and universities when looking for viable candidates can be helpful. This webinar introduces three OIB-TAC resources that are currently in development and strategies for using them when recruiting on college campuses. It also covers tips for developing a campus recruiting plan, how to contact campus offices, and some commonly hosted college-to-career events that would raise awareness of career options in the field of blindness and low vision rehabilitation.
