so this morning i went to NCBI national council for the blind here near where I live. I went to do some training in how to use my macbook. It was good…the session was useful. I learned some new stuff about the mac that I didnt already know.
I am going to do some one to one work with the head tech guy there, he said he’d call to my home and we can do some work together on how to use my mac.
That will be good, as its good to know how to use it, and I do want to get more familiar with it.
I also spoke to my resource worker again. She told me that the NCBI are organising a seminar in september, a technology and learning seminar, which I was interested in attending, so she said she’d send me out some info when they have a date confirmed and a venue for it and stuff.
I told her I was interested in gaining payed employment on a part time basis, and she was very encouraging, and said she would help me to try to gain employment. So I am meeting her this coming friday, to do a skills audit, to see where exactly my skills lie, and which areas I should most focus on when looking for work.
Then I will sign up for some job websites, and go from there. I wanted to get a job coach, but the place I looked at has a 4 month waiting list to get in with someone.
So we shall see what happens, I dont see why I cant get work, there are jobs out there, and I should be able to get one.
