[VIDEO DESC & TRANSCRIPT: The NAD logo appears on bottom right corner as a watermark. On-screen graphic with comic style with black and white video footage in background shows title: “APPLYING TO A JOB…”

On-screen-text ID: CARRIE LOU / NDC ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR

CARRIE LOU: The U.S. Census looks at what kind of jobs people have across the U.S. Their data shows that deaf people mostly work in five areas: manufacturing, medical, retail, construction, and professional services like accounting, consultation, legal services, real estate, and insurance.

KEVIN: When you apply for a job, make sure you follow the job description on the application form. Don’t randomly copy and paste the same information from other job applications.

On-screen-text ID: ISIDORE / HR MANAGER

ISIDORE: I learned the hard way once. I filled out an application at the last minute and they didn’t call me in for an interview. That threw me off. I had the qualifications they were looking for, perhaps even over-qualified! Thankfully, someone gave me solid advice: edit your resume and cover letter to fit the job description specifically. I should’ve paid more attention to the details.

KEVIN: Suppose I want to apply for a job online but how…

KEVIN: Go to the library! They have computers there. Or check out the employment office, the same place where you apply for unemployment, they have computers there too. In fact, the unemployment office has employment counselors to help. And VR!

Video cuts to grey background with the NAD logo quickly changing in different bright colors from teal to white to black to hot pink to green to orange to teal to yellow to purple to finally the official NAD logo with copyright text underneath “The National Association of the Deaf (c) 2019 All Rights Reserved”.]
