You guys would love my concept-National Employment Lottery System (NELS). NELS is designed to eliminate discrimination for once for all. It works this way-similar to military draft. Let me give example: a company has opening for Interior Designer and it is only 3 position available. OK, under NELS law I am proposing, that company has to go to their local Department of Labor and open an account with them that they need 3 new designers. They would have window of opportunity to be open for only two weeks and then applicants must submit their index cards that has names, address, SSN, and best contact (phone, text, email, etc). Then the official who works for DoL would drop off cards from both snail mail and from computer that you send a form through into a big bingo-style drum and at the end of 2 weeks, the official along with the HR manager from that company to observe. The official from DoL will draft cards. Will draft three cards plus three more cards in case first 3 turned down or got another job elsewhere.
This will make companies stuck! They can not discriminate against the Deaf, Disabled, of color, ethics, religion, creed, etc.
You would love this! You will have better odd of getting a job this way than you hear all the discrimination you faced.
Now, VR counselors are not supposed to say oh you cant do this. That is wrong. Deaf people can become awesome designers because it is visual presentation and Deaf people are best at that because their visual sense is best out of those five because of deafness. Lose one, gain another as they say.
Now, as for education, we need to change education. More true hands-on training than arm-chair education and cut down to 2 years instead of 4 and no summer break. It would be faster. I actually am trying to make that bill in Congress. If they don't listen, watch out, I am running for White House in 2020. First true Deaf President of the United States.
If they put you down, its a trauma. Careful. You know what? If you know a lot of people who need a project, why not start your own business? You do not need college education to start your own business. Look at Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Edgar Hetteen, J. A. Bombardier, and many actors. They all did not finish or never went to college and they are more successful without a degree! YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! S***w college!
