Attention, college students graduating next year who are legally (or totally) blind. The National Research and Training Center on Blindness and Low Vision (NRTC) is pairing students nationwide with mentors who are also legally blind and working in a similar field of interest.
Opportunities include face-to-face mentoring, job shadowing, and networking. They offer career preparation resources and student incentives to participate.
Students must be under age 35 and should sign up by December 2013. Professionals who are blind and interested in serving as mentors are also encouraged to apply.
