One of the most feared by persons with disabilities to find employment, is the job interview . Here is where doubts arise and questions, like: I talk about my disability?, @ Since when I have to be talking about things that can or can not do?, ‘To’ and if you hide my disability < > (Where this possible, of course)?, Will want to hire me if you know that I have a disability?, Can I treat differently from people without disabilities ?
But before the interview, comes the Curriculum Vitae
(CV). In this case, we refer to our disability? Some say that by putting it because we are giving rise to discriminate against us … But particularly, I have always been in favor of putting it in the CV, because it is not the only way to find unpleasant surprises later.
Imaginaos that a person with hearing disability does not refer to their disability in the CV and offer you a seat call center, or a person with physical disabilities to interview him quoted in a third floor without elevator. These are just two examples of what might happen … I, of course, I prefer to go ahead with the truth, because ultimately it is not something so ashamed.
got to the interview
, a good time to talk about our capabilities and not just of our disabilities . If need adaptation of the job should say so. And of course not create false expectations of what we can do or not, if we can not do something (whatever) it must be said. I know people who, with such work, have accepted jobs that they could not play properly due to their disabilities and this, sooner or later leads to consequences. Sometimes the reason for this to happen are not the infinite desire to work, but not how to cope with our disabilities , wanting to hide or escape from our reality.
There are other people with
mild disabilities or that are not visible, which directly “spend” tell the interviewer of his disability. This does not strike me as well to either side; on the one hand, the person should not hide something like that (though there are some who say it is something private that nobody cares) and on the other hand, if the company does not know the disabled employee can not benefit from the Contracts Bonus that by hiring employees with disabilities.
Other times we wonder how we see our interviewers by disabling condition or how we treat
. Normally in the Integration Services Labor ( SIL) are interviewers who are accustomed to dealing with people with disabilities, so that people are dealing with these issues a lot of respect, although I had a little unpleasant experience SIL with one of these questions where I did a little hurtful that were not necessary to make (we must always be prepared to encounter all sorts of people), but except on that occasion, in other interviews that I was doing were all very respectful and pleasant .
My advice is that since we have had to live with disability,
it is best not to create more problems and be honest with our CV and our interviewers .
