The most important part is to be able to tell them what works for you, what
accommodations you use, and why.  Write it down first before you go there
and have it either memorized or in note form. An employer or rehabilitation
counselor, even if they are resistant is more likely to cooperate if you
know your stuff; it's your show.

Dear Students,

I'd like to discuss the importance of social skills.  In the Winter issue of
the Student Slate Cody Bair talks about the ABC's of metworking when looking
for a job.  Communicating with perspective employers is a good way to have
questions about the company answered.  As blind students we more be able to
communicate our needs to our rehab counselors and professors.  
I'd like to hear your thoughts on this topic.
