Where the Blind Work
The Jernigan Institute, Employment Committee and the Writers'
Division have a joint project and we need your help. We are building
an employment resource of job descriptions and how the blind compete
within them. The "Where the Blind work" is a great informational
resource to assist youth to plan for future employment and for the
adult who is looking to change jobs and/or careers. We would accept a
description of your present job, or one that you had been engaged in
recently, or both.
The collection of descriptions is divided into twelve generalized
categories. They are: Administrative and Office Careers;
Business/Entrepreneurial Careers; Computer Specialists; Customer
Service; Education Careers; Financial Careers; Government Careers;
Human Services; Law Enforcement and Legal Careers; Media, Marketing,
and Public Relations; Medical Careers; Vocational Jobs.
Your description needs to be less than 1,000 words, and must follow
the below five question format:
When completed please email them to <mailto:newmanrl at cox.net>newmanrl at cox.net
