The Massachusetts Commission for the Blind provides employment-related services to eligible participants of the Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Program. The MCB Employment Specialist works cooperatively with the VR counselor to prepare individuals for the job search process. Direct services to a job seeker can include: resume development, cover letter and business correspondence creation, mock interviewing, and employment networking strategies. These activities have been recognized as problem areas for any job hunter, but pose unique difficulties for an individual who is blind. These services are typically provided statewide and are quite flexible based on the consumer’s need. Employment services can also assist in job searches and provide information on job fairs or hiring events.
