Magnet Today: Job-matching platform connecting people with disabilities to employers committed to diversity
People with disabilities urged to register with Magnet, a powerful online job-matching platform –
Toronto, March 9, 2016 – Canadians with disabilities in search of good jobs that match their skills and aspirations are being urged to register with Magnet, a powerful job-matching network using next-wave technology.
Called the Disability Discovery Project, this diversity recruitment drive is aimed at removing barriers to employment for people with disabilities and connecting interested employers to a truly diverse talent pool.
Magnet’s data-rich network, led by Ryerson University and supported by the Ontario Chamber of Commerce radically alters how people with disabilities find meaningful employment and how organizations source talent from this largely untapped labour force.
The National Educational Association of Disabled Students (NEADS) is supportive of the Diversity Discovery Project. “We support this proactive recruitment drive to help persons with disabilities with post-secondary education launch their careers with companies that they want to work for,” said Emily Duffett, Chair, NEADS.”
