Developing Career Planning and Placement Strategies.
Kolvitz, Marcia, Ed.
These three conference papers from the Biennial Conference on Postsecondary Education for Persons who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing focus on career planning and placement strategies for students with deafness or hard of hearing. The first paper, "Successful Job Development and Placement Strategies with Deaf and Hard of Hearing College Students" (Sara L. Geballe), describes the employment services for students with deafness or who are hard of hearing at Seattle Central Community College. Barriers to successful employment of these students are identified. The second paper, "Career Success of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Graduates: Preliminary Findings of a Ten-Year Study" (John G. Schroedel and others), discusses the results of a study of 325 individuals with deafness or hard of hearing that examined career attainment ten years after postsecondary graduation. The study found that the majority were economically self-sufficient and worked in professional, technical or managerial jobs. The final paper, "Deaf Supervisors of Hearing Employees: A Profile in Progress" (Janet MacLeod-Gallinger and Susan Foster), reports findings from a survey of 121 postsecondary graduates with deafness or hard of hearing that sought to identify supervisors of primarily hearing employees. Results found 43 of the graduates were currently supervisors. (Some papers contain references.) (CR)
