**Online Job Fairs:
An excellent method for locating a job for the visually impaired is attending online job fairs. A program called Ability links provides periodical job fairs. Visit abilitylinks.org sign-up, upload a resume and register for the next job fair. I have attended two online job fairs for the experience. A variety of opportunities is available.
