Employment Immersion Program
This program not only covers the nuts and bolts of employment training, like resume writing and interview skills, but also addresses the “hidden messages” of landing a job: accountability, chemistry with hiring teams and personal presentation. Through workshops, one-on-one meetings and phone-based follow-up, clients are ensured success thanks to the program’s unique, high-contact framework.
A cornerstone of the program is connecting blind and visually impaired jobseekers with successful blind professionals through formal and informal mentoring opportunities and employment workshops across five locations in the Bay Area, including San Francisco and the LightHouse’s new office in Berkeley at the Ed Roberts Campus.
Kate Williams, Program Manager, explains: “There is no substitute for seeing what success looks like for a blind professional. Whether by observing how someone uses adaptive technology in the workplace or how they graciously navigate questions and curiosity about their blindness, the firsthand perspective of issues like these is critical.”
