“I came to my current job in 2007, after working the NTI IRS program. Prior to that I did work outside the home and I don’t drive so transportation was an issue. So, I started to look for work at home jobs. After my time with the IRS I searched the NTI site for another employment opportunity. This is how I found my current position with a super-store located in the Midwest. Ohio Rehabilitation Services gave me the information to start with as well as setting me up with a job coach who helped me with my interview skills and resume. I believe this was a big part in me getting both jobs at NTI. I was well prepared for both interviews I had.
My job is interesting and fulfilling. Each day is never the same and the interaction with the customers gives me great joy. I take store calls and well as assist customers with web orders.
I was born legally blind and developed epilepsy in my teen years. Due to this I was never able to obtain a drivers’ license. Not having to worry about how I will get to and from work each day has taken a big weight off my shoulders. Being a teleworker has been more fulfilling to my career than I could have ever imagined. Getting to speak with many different people each day is amazing. Being able to help them solve a problem is rewarding. I am also more comfortable in my own home where I can set things up as I like them which makes it easier for me to see. In my previous work setting (out of the home) it was harder to do that. “
