Hi Group,

As you may be aware, I work for IBM in Mumbai as a Solutions Specialist. I
am also involved in some diversity initiatives one of which is to start an
internship programme for disabled candidates. The internship will be only
for 2 months and candidates will be given a short term project in those 2
months. The idea is simple - to give a student or a fresh graduate a work
experience in a mainstream corporate environment which will give the
candidate confidence and also remove doubts in the minds of future employers
about the employability of the candidate.

Towards this end I have got approvals for 2 interns this year and I hope
that the programme is so successful that we can convince our management to
have several more candidates for internship next year. If you know anybody
who may be interested pl do give them my contact nos. and ask them to call
me during office hours on weekdays. My contact nos. are given at the end of
the mail. The candidate needs to have the following basic criteria :

challenged with any disability - visual, hearing, ortho, etc.
in the second or final  year of graduation or just graduated in the last
couple of years (but not employed)
Good with computers (and screen readers if visually impaired)
Good English communication skills both oral and written
Able to travel between office and home 
Basic awareness of industry
We will be paying selected candidates a stipend as well as a travelling
allowance. The candidates will undergo a telephonic interview post which
shortlisted candidates will be called for a final interview to our premises.
IBM is an equal opportunity employer with a wonderful work culture which
encourages diversity and I am sure that the interns will enjoy the
experience. Thanks. 

Warm regards,

"Lord, take me from untruth to truth, from darkness to light, from mortality
to immortality"
