JOB HUNTING RESOURCES
FOR PEOPLE WITH VISION IMPAIRMENTS
A New Book Published By Blindskills, Inc.
In this world of fast-paced career changes and job insecurity, blind and
visually impaired people need the latest tools and information to
succeed in the job market. Job Hunting Resources for People with Vision
Impairments is the definitive contemporary career guide for blind and
visually impaired people because it focuses on topics other career books
do not address. Not only does it include information on interviewing
techniques in a post-ADA world and pointers on resume and cover letter
writing, it also places emphasis on social and communications skills as
they apply to visually impaired job hunters.
This dynamic new book includes the latest thinking on successful
job-hunting strategies. You won't find a more comprehensive current
career resource list anywhere. In addition to an excellent
bibliography, the reader will find extensive online resources, which
will continue to link him to future job opportunities.
The book is available for $10 per copy in large print, cassette, and
computer diskette. The computer diskette edition includes braille ready
files for those who wish to emboss all or part of the book on their
braille embosser. The disk also includes an Internet directory that
contains the entire book in HTML files. A braille resource list is
available on request for those who purchase the book.
