In case you missed it, I thought our readers might be interested in a recent Guardian article from Jessica Luke, a blind graduate and Paralympian, who believes that unfair application processes are still excluding her, and many other blind jobseekers, from graduate roles.
Luke backs up her message with the depressing statistic that,
“Two-thirds of registered blind and partially sighted people of working age are not in paid employment.” (Douglas et al, Network 1000, 2006)
As usual the comments below are interesting too. Well worth a read I think.
