Careers in Tech Access

Asked about the future of the CVAA, Mizrui looks forward to the “development of a profession that is [baked in] at corporations, not on the fringe”. Goldberg said he gets calls from companies regularly that are looking for employees with accessibility skills. Those looking to enter the field should know the WCAG guidelines, participate in tech fairs or maker events, have skills that cross disabilities, move beyond disability and are adaptable to changes in the field. Job boards like a11yjobs have recent listings from Spotify, Apple, Amazon, the US DOJ and the University of Illinois.
