Employment

There are few workplaces as fulfilling as The Seeing Eye. Our employees do meaningful work and go home at the end of the day knowing they've made a difference. The Seeing Eye employs about 150 people at our Morristown, New Jersey campus, with jobs ranging from kennel workers to fundraising specialists.

Quite frequently, people ask us, "How can I become a Seeing Eye® instructor?" Staff instructors are full-time employees who hold college degrees from various fields of study and have successfully completed three years of specialized on-the-job training. They relate well to dogs and people and are physically fit, since their jobs are physically demanding and involve working outdoors in all weather.
