"As a direct result of my JAWS certification, I was asked to participate in a paid internship that I received a good reference from. I passed all of the exams necessary to become a contracted vendor of the state of Texas and I have been pursued by two companies that are interested in hiring me for my skill and certifications...joining one of the few that can call themselves JAWS certified."
