I agree. But, it's not totally dismal, deaf are getting jobs. You need to be in the right place and you need to have the right education.
so what does one do when.. they DO have the right education, plenty of past experience... and theoretically "in the right place" (whatever that may mean)?
I am an educated person... college... then changed careers- business school training program. Course.. my experience is in a field that may or may not be getting smaller- it's still out there though. So I can't explain why I am having a hard time finding any kind of job. For the last year I pretty much gave up out of frustration and disillusionment. School one would say... well.. if I had the money! VR drags their asses on that anyway also. Min wage job you say? They won't even interview me for those.
but hey..2017...maybe I'll get lucky. I don't know... I have age against me now too.
