Best jobs for the deaf…

NetSignNews claims one of the best employments for the deaf is Information Technology. Their source was 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?

    Here’s a great job.. how about teaching? Your boss supposedly knows how to sign, your co-workers are are either deaf or know how to sign, and your students are deaf… need I go on? Surely, there’s no problem in communication in this job! Level of education required for this job also varies. For those seeking just the minimum, a certificate is enough. if you want to move on to better pay or teach higher levels (college), a Master’s is required. Best of all – there are ALWAYS children in need of education. In bad economic times like we’re facing right now, you can be sure that you won’t be laid off as a teacher.
