Hello CareerConnect Friends, AFB CareerConnect has been busily preparing to launch the reorganized “Our Stories” section. The section has always been packed with tons of great success stories about mentors and other persons who are blind or visually impaired. Now, you will be able to find stories of interest by career field and other categories from the right-side navigation.
If you have contacted CareerConnect, you probably know me, Detra Bannister. I am the Employment Specialist within CareerConnect. I have been writing the “Our Stories” pieces and more for many years. I have a tremendous knowledge of our mentors and CareerConnect. Joe Strechay and I work together as a great team. My vast knowledge of the AFB CareerConnect website helped in figuring out the best grouping of the careers, and I take a lot of pride in the hard work our team puts into the program.
I was instrumental in the reorganization of this section, and I am pretty excited to share it with you. It is like showing off a newly renovated room or part of your house. So, please check it out, pass it on, and explore.
P.S. If you know any great and exciting persons who are blind or visually impaired that should be featured because of their employment and life — let us know! We are always looking for great mentors and stories.
Provide us with feedback on your favorite story; it is really hard for me to choose. We would love to see your story as an “Our Stories” piece on AFB CareerConnect!
