ASL vlog: Opening for a position at DawnSignPress

I have been working for over 5 years at DawnSignPress which is one of several Deaf-owned businesses in San Diego. I love the the ASL-friendly environment since all of employees, deaf and hearing, sign with each other.

We have been in business for over 25 years as a publisher of quality American Sign Language materials with the “Signing Naturally” series as one of our popular products. If you are ever in town, you are welcome to stop by for a short tour of the building.

I also would like to let you all know of an opening for warehouse clerk at DawnSignPress!

    Darn. 🙁

    Does your company provide reimbursement for re-location? 😀 😉

    Oh well.

    Like I’ve said before, darn Californians….

  2. Cathy says:

    Pay $ an hour?? Since San diego is very high cost of living. pay re- location? Huh?

  3. Katherine says:

    I couldn’t help but notice that under the Employment Standard category, there is a skill where it says following oral instruction is one of them. Does that exclude those with the inability to follow orally even
    if they could write to communicate as an alternative? Would you care to enlighten us what it means to
    help us understand? Thank you in advance.

    Hi Jon,

    Your presentation is very professional, and very informative. By the way, it kept me district few times when you were signing, however, I noticed an orb kept moving around you at least three times. It may sounds crazy or strange to you, it comes to my energy you have a spiritual around you. you need to take a close look at this orb comes down from the above of your head towards to the bottom on the right side. Don’t get freak out lol 🙂 I am sure a spirtual look over your shoulder and protect you as well :-)…
