It’s summertime. For some people, it’s a time for relaxation and vacations. For teens, this is usually when they get a job and save up (or splurge on something fun).
Working with customers at an ice cream shop, taking food orders, or having a cashier job might be tough, especially if you have difficulty with hearing.
If you’re a teenager who is deaf, hard of hearing, or has limited hearing - or the parent of a teenager with hearing loss - who is looking for a job, here are some ideas.
Don’t let your child, or grandchild, feel limited by these jobs. You can also try to look into apprenticeship programs through your child’s high school or job opportunities through a local Hearing Loss Association of American (HLAA) chapter.
If your child feels nervous about communicating with others at work, here are some tips.
If you or a loved one are experiencing hearing loss, please contact us at Pure Sound Hearing for a free hearing test and consultation.
