We always hear about events to help people find a job.
One job fair taking place made sure that everyone has a chance to find work.
The Mayor's Council on Disabilities sponsored the event, along with the city's office of Multi-Cultural Affairs.
It helped to showcase jobs that are available for disabled residents in the Tennessee Valley.
Organizers say just because someone has a disability, that doesn't mean they can't contribute to the work force.
Beverly Cosley is the Director of the Multi-Cultural Affairs office.
"We look at that person in a wheelchair, or we look at that person who may have a physical atrophy and we think, "they can't do that job," without even giving them a chance to explain themselves. Or to find out about what kind of adaptive measures can be taken in order to hire individuals."
As part of the event, professionals helped candidates with their resumes; with advice on what to wear, and how to present themselves during a job interview.
