How To Defeat Potential Career Opportunities of Unfairness When You Are Visually Impaired
Landing a job when you are visually impaired can be a challenge. But donít let some previous negative interviews or job experience deteriorate your job confidence. Consider these suggestions and you will find yourself employed.
Explore Your Opportunities
As with any job the first important step in finding a job is to determine what it is that you like and what you are good at doing.
Focus On Your Strengths
Turn the attention away from the fact that you are visually impaired and you can gain the confidence of the job interviewer. Although your physical outer shell may affect the impression you make, it is more important to be calm, confident and approachable.
Expect Unspoken Questions
Even if an interviewer doesnít verbal question your ability to do the job he or she may be thinking it. So destroy the question before it takes root by telling your interviewer how you will do the job (with or without special equipment) as well as any applicant and than promote your job strengths again.
Talk to friends, family and community members and let them know you are looking for a job and what you can do. Create a business card with both braille and standard text on the business card.
Utilize job agencies that specialize in opportunities for the visually impaired. Research agencies such as the Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired and National Council of Private Agencies for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
