Rita’s New Hearing Aids Give Her Confidence in the Job Search

A person looks in a newspaper for job listings and circles some postings with a sharpie.

Rita is currently looking for employment, while working one day a week at a church in Trail. She is also taking courses to stay up-to-date on her skills. She has tinnitus, which she describes as “24/7” ringing in her ears.

Her employment counselor at the local WorkBC Centre referred her to WorkBC Assistive Technology Services for funding for new hearing aids.

With her new hearing aids she received thanks to the help from WorkBC Assistive Technology Services, Rita feels much more confident in her job search.

“It has given me more confidence for employment and my everyday life tasks. It helped me look for jobs and not be as nervous about job interviews. It also helps me with taking courses with a bunch of people so I can clearly hear them,” she says, noting that it has also helped during important phone calls and meetings.

WorkBC Assistive Technology Services is operated by Neil Squire. Assistive Technology Services are available to individuals who have a work-related barrier due to a disability or a functional limitation. This may include barriers related to traveling to and from the workplace.
