The National Technical Institute for the Deaf held its annual job fair Wednesday. It was held at the Rochester Institute of Technology.
The job fair gives deaf and hard of hearing students the chance to meet with dozens of potential bosses for co-op positions or jobs after graduation.
One employer at the event said he knows what it is like to be in the position deaf and hard of hearing students often are, and is confident they can be successful in their job search.
"This group is an incredible group of students. I was a graduate and I understand this process of this job fair. I think these kids are 100 percent qualified for any position we can offer them," said Anthony Madalena of Navsea.
Organizers say about 300 students and nearly 40 companies participated.
Last year, 49 NTID students got a co-op or permanent position as a result of the Job Fair.
