Hi everyone, I've been pushing not just for accessible games, but for a more inclusive work environment as a whole.
EA is an equal opportunity employer and the question I pose here is not an attempt to actively recruit anyone at this time. It is a discussion on how to set people up to succeed in a variety of roles, and how to improve future recruitment efforts.
Today I was asked about what types of skills a blind candidate may bring to the table, and which positions would be a great fit. I had many examples, but I think the most powerful type of response to this would be first-hand accounts.
So... what types of jobs do you feel you'd be a good fit for, especially in the game industry, and why? You can post here or email me at AccessibilityFeedback[email protected]
Again, this is not a recruiting effort, this is a discussion to improve future outreach programs.
