TEK TALK WELCOMES AUTHOR, BONNIE MOSEN TO DISCUSS HER NEW BOOK: IT'S OFF TO WORK WE GO!"

Unemployed and actively seeking work? Underemployed and searching for a job that makes better use of your skills? Entering the workforce for the first time?
Having a job promotes dignity, helps with a sense of purpose, and hopefully brings in some money to buy the things we want.
Paperless offices and increasingly capable assistive technology should mean that jobs are easier for blind people to get than ever. Yet it seems that attitudinal change hasn't happened as quickly as technological change.
The bottom line is that for many blind people, finding a job can still be a long, frustrating journey that can drain the self-belief of even the most positive person. If you're looking for a blindness-specific guide, written by a successful blind professional who has helped many others realize their dreams, you've come to the right place.
Bonnie Mosen's book, "It's Off To Work We Go", contains practical advice, examples and anecdotes, all from a blindness perspective, drawn from her years of experience as a successful vocational rehabilitation counsellor. From improving your chances of landing an interview to the all-important question of when, if ever, to disclose your blindness, it's all covered.
There's something in this book for you. It's written in a chatty, easily readable style, with many real-world examples of strategies that work and strategies that don't.
