TennesseeWorks and its many partners took part in the national Hire My Strengths social media campaign, which encourages everyone, with a disability or not, to think about what it is you’re good at and to be confident that an employer wants what you have to offer.
Individuals could take part by following five easy steps: (1) download a sign, (2) write a strength, (3) take a picture, (4) post it on social media, and (5) share other campaign social media content. It’s never too late to do this. Click here to visit the campaign website.
TennesseeWorks created an Infographic to summarize its participation and reach in the campaign. Click here to view.
