Listen and Learn How Blind People Really Get Jobs


LightHouse to Offer 22 Live-Stream Hours of Intensive Employment Retreat Starting Today! 


Want to know the inside scoop on how blind people get job after job even in this economy? Want to listen in as blind professionals and blue-collar workers tell their stories of job success? And want to learn how blind employees manage to keep up their self-confidence and work-life balance?


The LightHouse for the Blind is beginning today an unprecedented four-day summit at its Enchanted Hills retreat in Napa, California. This lively immersion gathering will bring together more than 60 participants to talk seriously about employment. And not just how to shake someone's hand or format a resume, but the deeper motivation and techniques everyone needs to win their next job.


Presenters will include Marty Nemko, Bay Area job coach, author and radio host; Kirk Adams, CEO of the Seattle Lighthouse for the Blind; Elcio Barcellos, Vice President for Global Recruitment at Hewlett-Packhard; Michael Bullis, longtime writer and employment motivator; Gena Harper, a top executive with Smith-Barney; Mike May, entrepreneur and adventurer; Joe Xavier, Deputy Director, California Department of Rehabilitation; Tim Ford, attorney with the California Department of Health Services; George Wurtzel, lifelong blind advocate for blue collar employment; and many others.


The live-stream is not limited to a few professions or career paths. In fact, among the dozens of attendees in Napa will be people in law; high tech and programming; nursing; rehabilitation; counseling/therapy; ministry; chemistry/physics; social work; interpreting/translation; piano tuning; administrative support; accounting/finance; customer service; human resources; and advertising. 


Our live-stream will begin on Tuesday, September 6th at 1:00 p.m. Pacific Time and continue until 6:00 p.m. that day.  We'll resume the live presentation Wednesday and Thursday at 8:45 a.m. and present our lively lineup until roughly 5:00 p.m. each of those days. We'll wrap up with some powerful presentations Friday morning, September 9th, from 9:00 a.m. until noon. 


The stream is free of charge, and we hope you will cross-post this information to any individual and organization who could use a powerful boost to their own employment objectives. The LightHouse for the Blind in San Francisco is proud to offer this motivational and fun seminar to our community free of charge.
