Promoting Disability As Strength/Advantage – Job Interview Skills Report Launch

Titled “Self-Promote Your Disability as a Strength During an Interview,” the report notes that one in four people in the US have a disability and says that numbers like these should not only bring comfort to applicants preparing for an interview but should act as a springboard for candid discussions that will help the applicant shine.

disABLEDperson, Inc. reminds audiences that the world still has some catching up to do when it comes to accessibility and other challenges individuals with disabilities face; however, the interview process does not have to fall into this category. In their new report, the specialists at disABLEDperson, Inc. provide examples applicants can follow to distinguish their disability as an asset.

The report recommends job applicants understand their rights before going into an interview. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), passed in 1990, contains rules around what employers cannot do when it comes to a disabled applicant or worker, and being aware of these stipulations gives candidates the knowledge they may need to mitigate unprofessionalism and prevent discrimination on the part of an interviewer.

With these rights in might, the report says candidates can make a strong impression by highlighting their adaptability and other transferable skills. Providing examples of achievements, focusing on marketable skills, and not hiding weaknesses all demonstrate a level of confidence that can go a long way in an interview setting.

Founded in 2002, disABLEDperson, Inc. is a public charity organization committed to facilitating disability employment.

As a comprehensive and fully accessible online job board, the platform partners with hundreds of employers who have a strong desire to hire qualified applicants with diverse backgrounds.

With over 300,000 jobs posted directly from employers and not funneled by aggregator software, the organization has a consistent track record of matching the right candidate to the right employer.

With the release of their recent report, “Self-Promote Your Disability as a Strength During an Interview,” founders of disABLEDperson, Inc. are helping today’s individuals with disabilities find ways of communicating the strengths they know they possess to employers whose goal is to hire the most qualified candidate.
