Are you a blind person seeking employment?
Are you an employer seeking competent blind employees?
The NFB Employment Committee has the answer!

Want to be on the most active Jobs Website for the Blind, with approximately
2.2 million messages each year?  Try the National Federation of the Blind
(NFB) Jobs for the Blind listserv.  It's easy to sign up, there is no
charge, and you don't have to be a member of the NFB.  Here are the
benefits:

Employers: 
*	Your job postings will go to 500+ blind jobseekers who change
constantly as people who get jobs drop off and new ones come on.  
*	You'll be able to network with knowledgeable blind people on the NFB
Employment Committee and on the list, and get advice on how to recruit and
accommodate blind employees.
*	You'll reach individuals in the rehabilitation system, but also
those who've been in the job market for years and are looking for a career
change.  
*	You'll learn about and be able to participate in our two national
Job Fairs, one in Orlando, Florida in July (300+ blind jobseekers) and one
in Washington, D.C.  in late January/early February (100+ blind jobseekers).

Job Seekers:
*	You'll be able to find jobs with employers who actually want to hire
blind people.  
*	You can network with and get career advice from members of the NFB
Employment Committee and experienced blind job seekers.  
*	Committee members can help you with your resume and with job seeking
skills.  
*	Technology or reasonable accommodation problems?  We can help you
get the advice you need.  
*	We constantly seek new employers, including those in Fortune 500
companies. 
*	You'll be able to attend the two Job Fairs listed above, plus the
Job Seeker Seminars we host in Orlando, Florida, and in other states.

registration, and fill in the blanks.  There is lots of other useful
information on our site.
