Today’s the last day of vacation for the One Day, One Job team, so we’re going to be pretty brief, but we still think this looks like an awesome job for our dog loving entry-level job searchers. If it’s not evident by their name, Dogs for the Deaf is a non-profit organization that rescues homeless dogs and professionally trains them to assist people who have hearing impairments. You’ve probably heard of “seeing eye dogs,” but there are so many more people than just blind people who can use the help of a canine friend. Sometimes the assistance that these dogs offer can even be life saving.
Beyond dogs for the deaf, Dogs for the Deaf also trains dogs for assisting seniors and other people with special needs. Dogs that are taken from shelters are never returned and always find a wonderful new home, even if they’re not cut out to be a working dog (they call these dogs career changers).
Dogs for the Deaf is currently hiring an Apprentice Instructor to take part in the training of dogs. This is a two-year program that culminates with significant knowledge of the training process for assistance animals. A college education is not necessary, but this job might be the right fit for a dog lover who has ambitions to make the world a better place.
Note: On April 27th we revisited entry-level jobs at Dogs for the Deaf.
