5.0 out of 5 stars Thankyou for a book that really helps! 8 Dec. 2011

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a person with a visible disability I do not have a choice about disclosing. I have read every book I could get my hands on about disabilities and employment and yet NONE of them have offered me any real advice about how to approach it. This offered me real world insight into what employers are thinking and most importantly fearing and what I need to do to ease those concerns. I knew that employers were concerned, what I did not know was why, or further what I could do to put them at ease. This is the first book to offer me any real practical advice about how to handle disability issues in interviews. For the first time in my life I am not scared of interviewing and what it will bring up. I feel that I can handle it now and actually feel that I may be able to get a job. I can handle the rest of the interview, I can handle the written applications, in fact I know I am handling them I always get offered interviews. I have had numerous interviews in which no one mentioned my obvious disability or asked one question about it. I realise now I need to raise it and how to do that. Thankyou for some real world experience that is what I have been searching for, for over five years!!

This book should be compulsory reading for anyone assisting people with disabilities into employment.

It also gives advice about how to ease into work and not cut all disability benefits and risk loosing them, which is the main fear that most people have.

There is so much this book does that most other books of a similar nature fail to cover. It is honest and open and gives the information needed.

My only regret is that I did not find it earlier!
