Topic: The Club House / Starting Career in Corrections

Hello forum. I am completely new to this Site and joined because I strongly intend to apply to a corrections officer job with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice in the near future. I am coming out of a 3.5 year stint with the US Army in which I served as an infantryman, one of those years was spent on a combat tour in Iraq, during which I experienced some pretty significant hearing loss. I have a few questions regarding my future employment. 1.) How negatively will the hearing loss effect my getting a job? It’s not quite as bad as the army makes it out to be and it’s only at very high frequencies. The TDCJ doesn’t mention a hearing exam on their qualifications list…but I’m sure they must have one. 2.) How positively would my military and/or combat experience help me get the job? Thanks.
