Emerita Finds Confidence in the Job Search with Hearing Aids

December 11, 2019

Thanks to new hearing aids purchased through WorkBC Assistive Technology Services, Emerita, of Vancouver, is feeling more confident than ever in her job search.

“I feel confident being able to hear properly!” she shares. “[I have] better hearing capability for job interviews.”

A good interview is key to landing a job, and can be quite stressful. But it’s even harder to do when you’re having a hard time making out the questions asked.

Emerita is hard of hearing. “[My] hearing ability is a major challenge in daily communication.”

She learned about WorkBC Assistive Technology Services through the Wavefront Centre for Communication Accessibility (new window) (formerly the Western Institute for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing).

Before long, she was able to procure a left earpiece for her hearing aid. Emerita “absolutely” recommends Assistive Technology Services, saying she commends the team for their “swift action in processing my request.”

WorkBC Assistive Technology Services is operated by Neil Squire. Assistive Technology Services are available to individuals who have a work-related barrier due to a disability or a functional limitation. This may include barriers related to traveling to and from the workplace.
