This study will help us evaluate a job search skills training program with adults who are blind or have low vision (B/LV). This study involves:

  • Attending a 5-day group training 
  • Providing feedback about the training
  • Taking an online survey before and after the training
  • Submitting your resume before and after the training

Participants of this study will learn job-seeking strategies for today’s job market, prepare for interview questions, and get support from trainers and peers. We will use what we learn from this study to improve the job search skills training program for other B/LV job-seekers.

We are recruiting individuals with blindness or low vision (age 18+) who are not employed but interested in working to be a part of this study. Individuals interested in participating can complete our survey to find out if they qualify.
