Learn about what goes through the average interviewer’s mind when faced with interviewing someone with vision loss. At this professional development workshop geared to those pursuing employment, we welcome a panel of individuals with extensive interviewing experience who share their perspectives from both sides of the desk and provide guidance on the questions you should be prepared to answer in the interview setting. By understanding these different perspectives, you can better direct the interview conversation to your advantage!

Our panel addresses questions like:

  • What legal concerns might the employer be thinking?
  • What stereotypes might the interviewer be harboring?
  • How can you put the interviewer at ease to make the conversation less stressful?
