Welcome to Houston Deaf Network!

It’s time, friends and foes! A time to rise up, unite resources, build support, educate and especially be “heard” by those who live in Houston. Although Houston is the 4th largest city in the US, we have yet to see a central hub where Houstonians can find a variety of useful information in one place.

Best jobs for the deaf…

1 CommentBy | Jan.14, 2009 | Filed in: News

NetSignNews claims one of the best employments for the deaf is Information Technology. Their source was Monster.com that reported 41% increased demands for IT staff such as software developer, systems engineering, database and so on. The second best job is accountant due to amount of demands not only in the U.S., but worldwide too. The difference between these jobs is the level of education. Most fields related to Information Technology aren’t limited to a college degree, but can be done through self taught, certified training and/or experiences. However, most accountants do require a college degree. So by their logic, IT dept would most likely have a better opportunity for the deaf. They didn’t have much statistics to back their claim, but I do think it’s somewhat plausible. For those of you who haven’t decided on a career or going through a career change, IT or accountant would be a safe bet. Despite what NetSignNews said, I’d take it with a grain of salt. If you don’t agree what’s been said, then what are the best jobs for the deaf?
