Q. I HAVE HAD TROUBLE WIT MY SPEECH, SINCE A KID, AND CANT FIND A JOB

TROUBLE WITH MY SPEECH
A1How old are you now?
What are your interests?
Are you sure the problem getting a job is your speech and not the way to dress or present yourself?
What other jobs have you held in the past and what happened to them?
I can think of a few places I have run into people with speech problems, such as the cable man or a waitress at a local restaurant. Consider asking a speech therapist what kinds of jobs other people with your particular problem hold.
A2Have you tried speech therapy? Usually this is done with children with speech problems but I think you might benefit as well. That and learning how to raise your self esteem should work. Plus, you should look into jobs that require more independant work than with crowd, so that your speech difficulties might not interfere.
