So what happened to equal employment in this country? I have a severe hearing disability and despite that, was able to attend and graduate college with a bachelor's degree in secondary education.
I am now in year five post-graduation and have been unable to find a teaching job anywhere in the state.
To gain experience, I have been subbing and have been looking for a second job for evenings to supplement my income. Despite applying for and interviewing, I have been unable to get a job like that.
I am now uncertain of how to proceed as I cannot land a teaching job because of a disability and/or inexperience, and now I cannot even secure a job that requires no college.
What am I to do since I have been left behind by the system? Equal opportunity seems dead in this country.
