Change Your Perception is a non-profit organization that assists members of the Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and Blind community in Arizona seek employment opportunities.
The Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and Deaf/Blind (D/HH/DB) community face unique challenges regarding how they market themselves as qualified job candidates despite their impairment. For a sobering perspective, in 2017, nearly half of this community had no job and that rate had not changed in the previous 10 years.
Our Barb Snyder, Veregy’s VP of Human Resources, is partnering on a campaign with Change Your Perception that will facilitate workshops helping the D/HH/DB community enhance their skills in resume writing and interview mastery. The goal of these workshops is to give attendees the confidence to seek employment and to bring awareness about the community’s alarming and unsustainable underemployed rate.
Do you know someone who could benefit from this offering, let us know! We want to serve our community in the best way possible.
