Ask Nate

By Nate Streeper, Library Coordinator

Dear Nate,

I’m anxious to get a job, and I’m not about to let my visual impairment stop me! Do you have any talking books that may help on the matter?

Thanks,
Juana Work from Ventura


Dear Juana,

How exciting! I’m bursting at the shelves with book recommendations—everything from job hunting techniques to technical skills, inspirational memoirs to out-of-the-box thinking. If I wasn’t fortunate enough to have already landed the most rewarding job on the planet, I’d start my own career path by reading ALL these books! Check out the 10 titles I’ve compiled below, starting with the time-honored classic by Richard Nelson Bolles (we have so many books available, I could list them for another seven pages). Click on the links to learn more about each title, then give me a call and let me know which ones you’d like… or simply download them directly from BARD!  #FirstStepKnowledge. #BIALibrary

Thanks for reading.
Nate Streeper, Library Coordinator
