Subject: Job Opportunities in Deafness – Please Share
Dear Mr. Staehle:
I am writing to you on behalf of PAHrtners Deaf Services. At this time PAHrtners is hiring individuals fluent in American Sign Language for professional and paraprofessional roles within our organization. Although we are located far away from you, many of our staff members have moved across the country to the Philadelphia area to join our amazing team of Deaf, Hard of Hearing and ASL-fluent staff members.
I am appealing to you to please help us inform your local Deaf/HoH community about the unique job opportunities available at PAHrtners. We have careers, in a Deaf environment, which individuals in your local community may wish to pursue. If you could make any type of announcements on our behalf we would be most grateful. Options could include announcements in person, via email, in a newsletter, a link on your website, through Facebook, etc.
We are trying to connect employees and employers and you may be able to help, if you are willing. I am available to you should you wish to help us in our mission to employ ASL-users. You may also find information about our current job openings at:
In closing, I hope you will share our information with your local Deaf/HoH community.

ESAD wrote a Letter to Mayor Bloomberg on Nov 8, 2012 to thank him for having an interpreter on Television with him during the emergency of Hurricane Sandy. ESAD strongly supports having an interpreter on television although there were some comments that made fun of the interpreter.
