I am looking for a job at the moment, which, along with becoming ill last year and getting diagnosed is testing me in a major way!
I had an interview today and it was a strange experience. Almost as though it wasn’t a serious interview and they kept thanking me for coming. They didn’t seem very professional but then it was local government! Anyway, I am slightly worried that because I declared a disability, interviewing me was just a box ticking exercise for them. But then maybe I am being cynical.
It seems you’re dammed if you do and dammed if you don’t. I declared it because I will need reasonable adjustments.
Does anyone have any insights/experiences?
