Below is their recruitment flier.

If you have the skills and ambition, we have the opportunities!


you interested in sharpening your job-related skills?

Perhaps you want to get back into the 

workforce after being away for a while. Or perhaps you would like to supplement your formal 

education with real-life work experience.

Project Starfish America is a global organization 

of people with disabilities preparing for the workplace of the future. Our members support 

each other to learn, earn, and generally become valuable contributors in this rapidly-

changing, decentralized economy as we assist large and small businesses in areas of talent 

recruitment, lead generation, datamining, and customer service. Our client roster includes 

Harvard University, Booz Allen Hamilton, Holisa (located in India), Enabled Employment 

(located in Australia), and Clintra (located in the Philippines). Our 60 Minutes 2 Impact 

program allows members to benefit from the skills, knowledge, and experience of leaders 

from around the world.

Currently, we have over 30 members from the United States, Canada, 

Australia, India, the Philippines, and the United Arab Emirates. Our skills range from 

marketing and human resources to business development and research. We aim to solve the 

crisis in which professionals with disabilities often find ourselves: "I need experience to 

get a job, but can't get a job without experience." And during the past three years, we 

have helped over 150 people who are blind find work with 70 businesses.

We are looking for 

people with intermediate computer and customer service skills to help us grow our business. 

Most importantly, however, we are looking for committed, ambitious people willing to work 

hard and learn, with a great attitude, like YOU!
