By, The Say Foundation Team

Persons with Disabilities (PwDs) are often told they can't do certain things. They're told they can't go to college, get a job, or even live independently. But that's not true! PwDs are just as capable of doing anything as anyone else—they just sometimes need a little help getting there.

It's important for you to know that there are many different types of jobs available for people who have disabilities. In this article, we will be discussing a few of them. Let us get started.

1. Vehicle and equipment cleaning

There are many reasons why the job of vehicle and equipment cleaning is a great job for people with hearing impairment. One reason is that it is a hands-on technical profession. This means that people who enjoy regularity and precise directions will likely be successful in this field. Additionally, hearing issues will not influence the success of this job.

Another reason is that it does not require a college degree. Some employers do not even require a high school diploma or equivalent. This makes this career an accessible option for those with hearing impairments who may not have the opportunity to pursue higher education.

2. Telephone Operator/ Contact Center/ Call Center

Telephone operators are responsible for handling incoming and outgoing calls on a variety of switchboards and phone systems. They connect local, long-distance, mobile, and emergency calls and often provide information or transfer calls to the appropriate party. In a call center environment, they provide responses to clients based on the product/ service.

Visually impaired people with good listening abilities might flourish as telephone operators. This position is for someone who likes socializing, responding to requests, and utilizing computers. Oftentimes, callers just want someone to talk to; being a great listener is key in this role. 

A high school diploma or equivalent is required for this job. Some employers may require certification from a vocational school or completion of on-the-job training. Many telephone operator jobs are available through recruitment agencies and/or job portals.

3. Actuaries

Math, statistics, and financial theory are essential for actuarial work. Actuaries must be excellent at math in order to accurately calculate risk probabilities. They also need to understand statistics in order to properly interpret data. The financial theory is important because it helps actuaries put a monetary value at risk.

This position is good for team players who love formulating plans and sharing their thoughts. Actuaries typically work in teams in order to develop comprehensive risk plans. Formulating plans requires creative thinking and problem-solving skills in order to come up with innovative solutions.

Actuaries may be a good fit for those with mobility problems who want to work in business. Working with math and finance engages the intellect with minimal physical movements.

4. Environmental Economist

The field of environmental economics is one that is constantly evolving as we learn more about the world around us and the impact that humans have on the environment. 

As an environmental economist, you would be at the forefront of this field, helping to shape policy and make decisions that could protect our planet for future generations.

Much of the work is conducted online or in an office setting, meaning that there are few barriers to entry in terms of physical accessibility. Of course, like any career, there are some challenges that come with the job. Environmental economics is a highly competitive field, so you will need to have a master's or Ph.D. in economics or environmental science to be considered for most positions. 

However, if you're up for the challenge and looking for a career where you can truly make a difference, then environmental economics may be perfect for you.
