We all come from different life situations.
Sometimes our main barrier is the availability of work in a given region, sometimes it’s our ability to reach our workplace. Job seekers often ask us if they should mention their disability in their CV. It’s important for an employer to know if an applicant has a decreased ability to participate in gainful employment – and whether it’s in the 41 – 70% range or more than 70%.
Whenever you are looking for work it is important to talk about how you can and wish to do your job. Inspire yourself with the stories of those who made it.
