The newly released report offers guidelines on how persons with disabilities can navigate the challenging situation and turn their disability into an advantage when attending an interview.

Also, it offers insights into how disabled persons can prepare for their interview, talk to potential employers about their disability, and what to do after the interview.

The report from disABLEDperson, Inc. acknowledges that disclosing one’s disability to a recruiter can be a tricky decision to make as it can create the grounds to be discriminated against, even when it is against the law to do so.

Due to this, many disabled persons choose to keep their disability a secret, especially if the disability is not easily identifiable.

The report suggests that disclosing the disability can, in some cases, help instead of hinder the application as it demonstrates the disabled person’s self-confidence.

In addition, it puts both the interviewer and the disabled person at ease since they now have to focus more on the individual’s potentials and abilities and less on their disabilities.

The report from the public charity organization highlights situations in which it may be appropriate for disabled persons to disclose their disability to potential employers.

disABLEDperson Inc. recommends that the disabled person inform the potential employer about their disability in a situation in which they will need accommodations of any kind that may require the employer to make changes to the office layout.

With the latest report, disABLEDperson, Inc. continues to provide practical solutions and helpful resources tailored to help disabled individuals find employment.

A spokesperson for the organization said: “Our goal is to help disabled persons find employment. To accomplish this, we publish valuable resources that help our audience better prepare for job interviews. We also work with proactive employers to share available job openings on our website.”
