Where the Blind Work

What kind of work are blind people doing?  How do they do it?  Why should employers hire a blind person?  What careers are YOU interested in pursuing?

Blind people are working in a wide variety of jobs doing work that people mistakenly believe require sight.  Blind students are often "tracked" into certain fields, whether they are interested in them or not.  Within these pages, you will find written personal accounts of the various types of employment that the blind are engaged in, how they do it, how does a person enter the field, and what positive influences helped the person to achieve their goal.
