CEO-Creating Employment Opportunities
Our CEO program provides the open and supportive structure of a job club. You will not only learn the most contemporary job search strategies like building a professional network, presenting yourself at interviews and disclosing your disability to employers, you will also have a safe place to comfortably and candidly discuss the realities of identifying as a professional with vision loss. The effective and relevant career planning provided at Second Sense will help you move forward and face the job search process with greater confidence and success.
