In this first person narrative, Jessica Luke, a blind Paralympian and master’s graduate discusses the hurdles she had to cross in order to find a job.
She illustrates how difficult the application process is for a person with vision loss and the difficulties faced through the interview process. Based in the UK, Jessica now works as a marketing intern for a charity. The same problems described by Jessica are faced by visually impaired Americans who are job hunting and we need to work together to improve the process.
We offer employment training programs. Visit this page to learn more.
