Blind People at Work

The following is a list of some of the types of positions in which blind persons who have received assistance from Job Opportunities for the Blind (JOB) are now working. Of course, this does not represent all of the types of jobs blind people can do or are doing. It is merely a sampling. We have listed positions, and in many cases several persons have found work in positions that are somewhat similar. The variation of skills and backgrounds required of persons to work in these positions is abundant. Thousands of blind persons who are equally well-qualified in as many diverse fields are still looking for work.
