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:

  • Taking four online surveys over a 2-year period
  • Submitting a resume with the first two surveys
  • Being randomly assigned to receive written materials or participate in group training

Participation may include:

  • Receiving resources and information about job search skills
  • Attending a 5-day virtual group job search skills training program
  • Providing feedback about the program

We will use what we learn from this study to determine if job search skills training leads to better employment outcomes for B/LV job seekers.

We will be 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.
