Re: assistance with chat group platforms


 

Yeah I know.

Enough media broadcasts put you guys as having major issues.

Its not all rosey here either.


Jobs are few and far between.

Initially I was hoping I could build up a port folio of accessibility testing work but its not that easy.

Most companies are 1 or 2 man units and well they come and go.

The major networks well you need to be lucky to find them.

The job I just did and my first jobs werre only known to me because there was basically a distress signal put out online because someone or other got a problem and couldn't do the work.

The first of these jobs did continue but stopped.

This one is just starting and I hope it continues.

Some companies have shifted to other frameworks and have merged into big powerhouses but jobs are not really big as such.

Most of what I do with accessadvisers for example is sit looking at conferences and other things rather than working.

I am in new zealand.

I take jobs mostly from the us, australia, new zealand, and just about anywhere.

You may have issue getting jobs that far out.

I mean its first come first served.

Also you need a good connection.

Then again who knows.

Just by being in africa especially where you actually are you actually need to be a toughh customer.

More than that, you have delta and omicron at your door and you still want to go improve yourself.

You've made my night man, that totally kicks ass.

Your local blind organisation list will have jobs.

 

The following companies I know have jobs or could be looking.

https://connect.intopia.digital.

This came on my desk as an emergency load.

I did a job with them 2 weeks back.

It payed half of my audioquest dragonfly red which arrived today, fully registered and updated and sounds amazing.

2.

 

level access.

There are jobs but they may be american ones never got a responce back but yeah they are probably good.

Nobility.org.

I have not had a job from them for a while.

Access advisers.

Not sure if this is international or just local but yeah there are potential jobs though not recent.

Next, check out your local university.

True you may need help getting in the door and not sure how to do that.

I was bored one day and used a contact who's mobility teacher's husband just happened to be a professer in psychology and well I got in that way right up to test pilot level.

But it may not be that easy for you, ring about.

The final thing to try is your local disability ministry or whatever they are if there are jobs.

I am not sure how to do this as such as I was contacted by local people on my organisations lists.

Off the top of my head.

blindtech.

atug.

atig.

if you look at https://keybase.pub/shauneve

then find and download a file called listolists.txt there are lists of stuff in there.

Some may work others may not.

These were setup as a temperary database because the local org just didn't compile things.

And thhe lazy gits on the lists I asked about said I should do it myself because obviously they didn't want to bother.

So for the sake of the users I put it together.

Don't expect me to forking update it though.

I mean its there and it works but its there for a different thing than what it is.

 

Aden I did notice you are using a cloud email so it would help to know where you live.

Anyway there are places you should be able to go but I don't know all of them.
