<p>Deaf jobs relate to education, medical care, support, and interpretation fields. Finding work advertised for professionals with experience catering to the deaf community is not a difficult task, when you have the right background and skills appropriate for the job. Some deaf jobs require a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Deaf Education, for outreach consultation aimed to assist the deaf and hard of hearing community. Some work is very technical as in the case of language and speech therapy; Deaf teacher that requires a certification in social studies; and Deaf interpreter, which needs following a deaf program, being certified and being part of the NAD, the National Association of the Deaf. Other freelance jobs involve caring for young deaf-blind children who require daily help, and offering support for senior citizens on the weekends. </p> <p><b>To Freelance or Not To Freelance</b></p> <p>Deaf jobs for professionals in the field of interpretation demand a high level of deaf culture knowledge including social, cultural, and historical, in addition to being up-to-date to economic and legal factors that may impact people who are deaf, deaf-blind, late deafened, and hard of hearing. Permanent and specialized deaf jobs encompass a wide variety of fields, from registered dietitians for deaf seniors, to rehabilitation specialists whose duties might include counseling and social work, as well as in-home nursing care, community sign language instructors, and Deaf services coordinator who would need a degree in Educational Interpreting, Deaf Studies, Deaf Education, and special experience with Deaf academic curriculum and Deaf Teacher management. Deaf jobs also include freelance and private deaf educator positions for academic support throughout the school year. Freelance opportunities are abundant for professionals with a high degree of experience, good references, and a general ability to get referrals from existing clients, however, they do require a constant search for new jobs in the local area where you live, or the means to travel where work is available.</p> <p>Deaf jobs are obtainable for hearing professionals who have a clear understanding of the needs of the deaf community, and deep knowledge of deaf culture, along with competency in ASL and other sign language skills. But there is also a high demand for deaf persons who can assist others in their community, either as ASL instructors for education interpreting, facilitators in community and social services, and a number of other possibilities in all aspects of life. A myriad of options are open for those who have acquired the professional and networking skills needed to succeed in the marketplace.</p>
