Welcome to MyPlus Students' Club where I really hope you will find the huge amount of resources and advice about careers, and the information about different employers really interesting and useful.
Finding a job is challenging for everyone; however when you have a disability this challenge can become even greater as you take into account considerations such as telling an employer about your disability, requesting adjustments or accounting for gaps in your CV.
When I started applying for graduate jobs I recall being concerned about whether I should be open about my disability; I couldn't 'hide' my wheelchair once I got to the interview however, if I ticked the 'disability box' on the application form, would I even get to the interview?
I now know that whether you have a visible or hidden disability, progressive employers want you to be upfront and positive about 'ticking the box'.
As a disability consultant working with both employers and students, I am going to be sharing my advice and tips to help you to successfully progress through each step of the application process.
