Career success is not always a reality in the realm of disabilities. Compared with the general population, these can be very few and far between, literally making each phenomenal.
Of the different categories of disabilities, hearing impairment presents the biggest possibilities and opportunities for success given that there are no presenting issues in cognition, vision, motor skills, and mobility. This invited an in-depth look into the journey of six Filipino adults with hearing impairment who successfully made it to the world of work. Each has a baccalaureate degree is currently working and considered successful in his or her chosen career. In-depth interview with the participants investigated the attributes that they associated with career success and the motivation that drove them to achieve. Analysis of data through literature review and cross-case synthesis revealed that these were influenced by individual related factors (internal attributes) person-environment fit factors and organizational factors (external attributes). It is likewise suggested that the challenges associated with ones handicap play an important role in ones motivation to achieve career success. A parallel study involving more participants and other categories of disability that can lead to generalization of results and identification of other attributes associated with career success is recommended.
