No, my positions have been working on site.  I am doing my best to locate a
position  that is not working from home.  But, I would work from home if
that is the only option I am given.  J.A.W.S. has been my friend and been my
foe for working while blind!  I have some horror stories to go along with my
success stories!  My horror stories are not because of my J.A.W.S. and
computer skills, they are from difficult managers who refuse to try and
understand how I perform my role.  I am promising myself that if I do land
my next position I am not going to look for the next best thing while I am
in that job!  What I am looking for is a full or part-time job that pays
approx.. $12.00 or so an hour.  That $ amount gives me the flexibility of
making a little more, but not too much that I need to consider giving up my
S.S.D.I. benefits again.  You may have read about my Social Security
Disability Income re-instatement disaster that put me in finantial
difficultys!  I will not put my wife through that ever again!  I have
applied to jobs and brought up my blindness first thing and that has worked
for me and I'm sure it may have hurt my chances a time or two.  I write
about my blindness in an exciting way and bring up my Yellow Lab Guide Dog
and I think that has helped me land an interview or two.  I don't have near
all the answers though!

Ryan,

Since losing my eyesight when I was thirty-one years old during 2001, I have
held customer service positions working in mortgage banking customer service
and then I worked in the credit card banking business with Capital One.  I
most recently worked a position setting up customer sales appointments for
the auto dealership sales people for a vehicle look and test drive.  I am
starting a new auto sales appointment setting position next week.  I enjoy
these sorts of positions for many reasons, but I really enjoy being a good
J.A.W.S. user while me never having the need to tell a customer that I am
blind.  I am not embarrassed of being blind, I am proud to be good at being
blind.  But, me being blind never needs to come up during my conversation
with customers or potential customers.  Please let me know if you have any
questions for me and I will be happy to give you my two cents worth.

Steve

Good Afternoon,

Does anybody have any experience with online (or virtual) job? This allows
an individual to complete all of his or her work only via internet or phone.
I think this is less bias way of getting hired (employers don't know you are
blind as long as you get the job done on
time) and probably gives higher chance of working for blind people.  I was
able to pull off a list of these kinds of jobs from google but I want to
find ones that are more doable by a blind person (such as barriers due to
accessibility, technology, so forth) and generate substantial income
(definitely not something like transcribing job which only pays like $.05
per hour) at the same time.  Any suggestions or recommendations?

Ryan
