Discussing Disabilities

Job-Seeking with a Disability

FYBEN_Blog7_Intro-Summary
Some disabilities are easy for other people to see, and some are difficult or impossible for other people to see. If you can do the essential parts of a job, you are eligible for the job, even if you need a reasonable accommodation. (A reasonable accommodation is a reasonable change that allows someone to do a job, and we will discuss those more later in the blog.) If you have questions about what the essential parts of any job are, make sure to ask when you apply. You can say, "What are the essential functions of this job?"

Some people choose to talk about their disabilities in job interviews. Others choose to wait until they are hired before discussing their disabilities. As long as you know that you are able to do the essential parts of the job you're applying for, either choice is acceptable. If you're not sure you will be able to do the job, ask questions at the interview so that you can be sure.
