There are many good career opportunities for people who have a hearing impairment. Let’s start with the obvious: you can do most jobs in front of a computer without relying on your hearing. This means working in IT and web design and jobs like copywriting, data entry specialist, accounting, financial planning, etc.
Some of these may require a degree of verbal client communication on the front end that you may have to rely on your co-workers’ help. However, you can handle 99% of communication with clients in these fields via email.
But if you don’t want to work on a computer, there are other options. For example, there are plenty of jobs in healthcare that require little verbal communication, usually stuff related to exams and research. In addition, you can go into education and use your personal experience with a disability to give students a different perspective or even focus on helping students with a similar disability.
Yes, many of these career paths require training you may not have, but a good disability employment services provider like https://www.atworkaustralia.com.au/ will likely also help you get the training you need to change your career paths, if necessary.
