Hard of hearing people often ask, “Where can I get a job that doesn’t penalize me in any way for not being able to hear well?” Such jobs are typically few and far between.
The good news is that currently North Carolina has two job openings for people that are either hard of hearing, deaf or deaf blind and are well-versed in the needs of people in these categories.
These jobs are skilled positions and require the right degrees and job experience, but if you meet their requirements, this is a chance to get a good job.
For those of you that want to work from home, as I’m sure you’re aware, most of the work from home jobs that are listed are scams. According to Bottom Line Publications there are 60 scams for every legitimate work from home job listed. Thus you have to be very careful when assessing such jobs.
To make it easier to find a legitimate work-from-home job, Bottom Line Publications recently posted an article called “Finding a Work-at-Home Job” that lists a number of legitimate jobs and legitimate job sources. Note, these jobs are not specifically for hard of hearing people, but you might find a job you can do in spite of your hearing loss. If you’re interested, check it out. You’ve got nothing to lose, and maybe a job to gain.
