Massachusetts Commission for the Blind (MCB)

MCB provides the highest quality vocational rehabilitation and social services to Massachusetts residents who are legally blind and visually impaired, leading to their independence and full community participation.

October is Nat'l Disability Employment Awareness Month

In honor of National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM), MCB launched initiatives that emphasize the importance of employment for Massachusetts residents who are blind and visually impaired, including a podcast entitled "Career Views" with strategies for obtaining employment. The podcast features stories from individuals in a variety of careers, as well as insights from MCB staff and employers on interviewing and hiring skills. New episodes will be released on a regular basis in October to recognize NDEAM.

Reminder: Turn JAWS off after loading a podcast if possible before listening. This will avoid recurrent time notifications. 

Follow "Career Views" on Spotify for the most current episodes.
