Employment & Career Development

Too often persons who are blind perceive limits rather than opportunities for career direction. The Colorado Center encourages students to look past limits and dream about possibilities. Through job preparatory classes, discussion groups, and individualized planning with the employment team, students discover and develop exciting options and achievable goals. Impressively, 85% of our graduates have jobs!
The employment team helps students to:

  • Explore career options
  • Identify concrete steps for reaching their goals
  • Develop a resume and cover letters
  • Learn to use the latest technology for the job search e.g. the Internet
  • Improve job interviewing skills
  • Participate in various job shadows and internship
  • Meet with very successful blind people to observe how they do their jobs
