Hi Tara,

Congratulations on being almost done with school. You must be excited. Personally, it's never too soon to start looking for opportunities. But I would agree that beginning in the winter semester seems a little soon. Remember, when you go on interviews you want to be able to show the potential employer the work you have done. You want to have experience in stories to share. And it wouldn't hurt to have actual student work to back up what it is that you're saying. I began looking for work at the beginning of the summer and was employed by Midsummer. But I had looked in advance to see what it was that I wanted. You don't want to just except any position. You want to make sure that wherever it is that you work is somewhere you really want to be every day. Where your strength and your interest lie. Don't settle!

I student teach this spring, but I would like to start looking for jobs as early as appropriate, because I know obtaining employment can be difficult for those who are blind. I have seen a few jobs online that look interesting, but I am pretty sure these jobs are for the spring semester. Would applying over winter break be too soon? Should I have a certain number of weeks of my student teaching completed first?
