Hi.
well, have been looking for part time or full time it jobs in devonport tas.
seems a lot of private and government jobs are in Launcestan or Hobart.
and transport, could be a major problem, to me even getting a chance to get 
an interview.
just starting seriosly to look for jobs.
put a few feelers, asking for if any companies in devonport, or ulverston or 
latrobe, a few it companies. but have not heard back from them.
so what do you suggest i do?
as the public transport system, not really that great.
no passenger trains, only buses, and that would take 3 hours or more out of 
my day to travel to Launcestan and return to devonport.
pity there are no online jobs i could do as a part of a team, from home 
using the internet.
suppose, most it firms have not the infresturcture to set that up.
so just wondering, what are my options.
there might be possible employment with Devon Industries, a supported work 
shop, and mainly manufacturing.
they do have a admin section, but no it.
they suggested i contact wise or ability employment.
well, when i was in devonport, before moving to the mainland, then moving 
back to tas.
long story.
will not bore you with that, that's for another time and another place.
so, what do you recommend?
any suggestions, possible solutions, or work arounds, would be fine.
or even possible links to possible job vacancies.
i do not really want to work in a supported work shop, did that about 20 
years ago at the royal society for the blind of south Australia.
so what do you suggest?
at a loss.
have been looking around for a little while, searching online job sites.
and get some it jobs, but they are in Launcestan or Hobart.
any ideas?
i have seem to hit a brick wall.
i do get a taxi subsedy.
but even at 2 days a week, to Launcestan and back, could be quite expensive.
unless, be able to car pool, even if i can get an interview, get short 
listed, and even get the position.
and even if i bring my laptop, which has jaws.
really hit a brick wall and need suggestions.
any one else been in this situation, middle aged, blind and trying to get a 
foot into this industry?
cheers Marvin.
