I’ve had a tough year finding suitable work and I am realizing that my hearing aids have definitely been a part of it. I have recently had to advise my manager that I can’t continue a role due to being unable to hear properly, even wearing them all day and turning the volume up.
I found the customers were getting agitated and my boss, who is a quiet talker, didn’t make it easier.
I am looking at advice for suitable careers with hearing aids. Preferably, where I’m not required to wear masks all day (not all places require them), as they tend to get caught up as they are behind the ear. I work in administration, but wondering if there are other options I may not have considered.
