working as a deaf person

hi, i just wondered what's it like for you working as a deaf person? what job do you have or had in the past? also do you feel like where you try to find a job that its advertised too highly, saying you need to be good at this, skills required etc.. alot of employer's will turn you down if you dont meet their requirements, that's a challenge for me at times like if i say im not very good at communication skills like on the phone, serving on the till, management role etc.. i prefer the worker like odd jobs, clearing up, shelf stocking, bringing in deliveries. sometimes if the person your talking to whether it's a customer or delivery driver, they might have an accent or speak to quick and that's a nightmare for me lol as i have to ask them to say it again. it's like deaf people can work but only really suited to certain jobs yeah.
