In The News - Charlesfort Developments [cached]

It was peer influence that prompted Aaron Marsaw, a new lawyer working in the Department of Justice, to look at his financial future and trade renting downtown for buying a 900-squarefoot condo in the Hudson.

The 33-year-old, who lost 98 per cent of his sight when he was 12 and underwent surgery to remove a tumour behind his optic nerve, had no desire to live outside the city core or to continue paying rent for a downtown apartment.
He can seen shapes and colours and likes to walk through the downtown.
His friends were starting to buy urban condos and he liked the idea of central living and being able to walk two blocks to work.
He also liked what he saw when Charlesfort built The Gardens, twin condo towers on Bronson Avenue.
He paid $315,000 for a seventh-floor condo. He too is saving to boost his down payment.

Aaron Marsaw, Lawyer, Department of Justice

Aaron Marsaw, a lawyer with a visual impairment, spoke about using the "informational interview" as part of a job search strategy. He began with a story about his own experience of networking and how his network grew as a result of sending thank-you notes to those who spoke with him when he was first looking for work.
Marsaw emphasized the importance of networking. It is about talking to people, asking questions, obtaining information, sharing experiences, and making connections. The informational interview is really just networking, he said, but in a structured way.
Marsaw recommended researching professional associations, finding and contacting prominent people in the field, and being organized about who to contact and how to approach each person. The campus employment office and the Internet are valuable resources.
Start by sending a cover letter. Express an interest in learning about the organization and the person's work, Marsaw said.
Marsaw suggested meeting as many people as possible and researching as many organizations as possible.
In that case, end the meeting after two or three questions, Marsaw recommended. Better to leave a positive impression than to extend an unproductive interview. But, no matter how minimally helpful the contact's advice was, send a thank-you note, he suggested. Marsaw also encouraged participants not to get discouraged if the search starts off slowly.
The informational interview is only one part of a job search strategy, but it can be very effective. In fact, such an interview helped Marsaw find his job in the federal government. As a result of talking to people, his resumé was widely circulated, and he was hired for an unadvertised position.
Over the years, said Marsaw, your network will continue to build and serve as a valuable source of ongoing advice.
To level the playing field, Marsaw advised students to ensure that their needs are known by the time of the interview.
Marsaw suggested follow-up assessments of personal accommodation needs every few years.
Marsaw said that he is very open to coworkers about his accommodation needs, including showing them his office and equipment and asking for formats that are better for him. It is important that employees with disabilities themselves help to increase awareness, he said.
Marsaw suggested that networking is one of the strategies for self-marketing and building toward starting one's own business.
Another participant responded that she sees a growing push toward self-employment, and yet not everyone is entrepreneurial. She also raised a concern that people with disabilities qualify for self-employment training programs sponsored by the federal government, and yet they receive no financial support for the duration.
