Your skills lend themselves to customer service and computer related phone
jobs.  Not that you couldn't do something else, but I'd liik there first.

I would recommend doing what you said in your mail.under promise and over
deliver.that is the way to endear yourself to an employer and more than
likely stay on for a while.

You have the skills and unless you wish to be self-employed as an
appointment setter or salesman for someone.The options for blind people to
work in non traditional jobs is not a good one. But all you can do is keep
pushin on with whatever career choice you make and realize that it is not
always you but rather near-sightedness of some employers.

This is steve in Virginia and I have a question for everyone.  I have held
banking positions with a large mortgage company and one with a large credit
card company  and I just lost a job working in the auto business working
internet sales.  What sorts of positions do any of you recommend for totally
blind people who are good J.A.W.S. users with good customer service skills?
I thought I made good choices in the past and maybe I did and maybe I
didn't!  I am forty-nine years old and determined to work again, but I don't
know how much more I can give to pursueing another job if I am only setting
myself up for another employer disaster.  I try to not over-promise and try
to over-deliver, but maybe I should under-promise and try to over deliver.
I may not be young, but I know I'm not too old to work a long-term job.  I
would appreciate hearing  what sorts of jobs/positions other blind people do
and recommend for me and others.


Thank you, Steve
