Recruitment Underway for "An Employment Mentoring Intervention"

MSU-RRTC is actively recruiting college students and professionals for "An Employment Mentoring Intervention," one of six research projects under our current NIDRR RRTC on Employment Outcomes for Individuals who are Blind or Visually Impaired. Nationwide recruitment of college students who are legally blind and professional mentors who are also legally blind is underway and will continue through July, 2012. Mentees must be undergraduate or graduate students under the age of 35 who are legally blind, will graduate within 2-3 semesters after January, 2012, expect to seek employment after graduation, and have basic computer literacy and ability to access online materials. Mentors must be legally blind, currently employed or retired from a professional career, and must have basic computer literacy and ability to access online materials. To volunteer for participation in this project, please complete an online eligibility survey for students at http://tiny.cc/mentor-students or for professionals at http://tiny.cc/mentor-professionals.
