Possible Employment Solutions for Deaf/HoH

As I have been spending time searching for a job, I am realizing more and more that employers are only looking for experienced workers and that employers want the best of the best even for a dishwasher. I honestly can't tell you how extremely picky they are about who they hire. It's clear that they don't have time to train new employees. It puts jobseekers with limited or no experience at serious disadvantage. They can't go anywhere with that as the job market is getting tighter and tighter. It's just sad.

I am sure we all are wondering how we would get some work experience. Volunteering is the first thing that comes to mind, of course, but having trained or proper skills would make it easier for you to get a job. You could go to your local community college and look for some types of training programs that interest you. A certain job should be one of the growing demands in today's job market. It costs money and takes a couple of months or more to complete the training classes, but if you're really out of options, then it may be the only way to obtain an employment.

There's another way you could advertise yourself as, say, a graphic designer, a seamstress, or a mover on Craigslist's "Job Wanted" and/or "Skilled Trades" sections. You'd be surprised by how many people (minus scammers, of course) would respond to your ad. They might give you a project to do for them or even offer you a long-term position. So, give it a try and keep trying! However, you must safeguard your personal information and even your name when someone responds to your ad and arrange a meeting with them in a public place (library, cafĂ©, etc.). Use your common sense and beware of any scam artists or some kind of weirdos out there.
