We at CareerArc are very proud to share the news of our exciting partnership with Special Olympics World Games Organizing Committee, LA2015, in support of the 2015 Special Olympics Games – the world’s largest sports and humanitarian event of the year.
Staged in our corner of the world, Los Angeles, CA, from July 25 – August 2, the event expects to receive over 7,000 athletes, 30,000 volunteers, hundreds of Olympics employees and interns, and more than half a million fans.
To show our support for the 2015 World Games and share in the spirit of triumph over adversity, we’ve entered an innovative partnership with LA2015 to offer world-class career transition software to all 2015 Special Olympics employees, interns, and volunteer staff. With complementary access to CareerArc’s CareerBeam product prior to and during the games, the 30,000+ Olympics volunteers and employees will benefit from job alerts, social media, and networking tools that help increase the odds of finding a new job after the Games. The service also provides interview practice, resume development, and career transition assistance.
We are thrilled to be a part of the Special Olympics Movement’s flagship event which began almost half a century ago–the first Special Olympics World Games dates back to 1968. Learn more about this year’s Special Olympics and how to become a volunteer today.
View, participate, and share in their #WhatsOneThing campaign which asks Special Olympics participants and fans alike to share what they’ve done when once told their dreams were impossible. Watch just one of the many inspiring videos below.
