How does disclosing our disability status in job apps impact our chances of getting interviewed?

I’ve started disclosing it for two reasons. 1) increased focused in hiring minorities (which includes disabled individuals) 2) if a company doesn’t want to hire me because I disclose a disability, then I don’t want to work there!!!

According to the list of qualified disabilities I’m a disabled person I’m just not sure how disclosing it impacts my application. Improve my odds? No impact?

Depends: Feds? Yes….Private? Probably not.

Unless it impacts your ability to do the job it can only be viewed as a positive. Most companies are tripping over themselves to hire historically disadvantaged people. Typically that means minorities, LGBT[insert favorite letter here]+, and potentially women. However, I’m sure it also applies to disabled folks. Takeaway: disclosing it can only help you.

Depends on the type of company. Some podunk firm it might be a negative, but at a Silicon Valley firm probably a positive

Feeling blah. Got an offer and turned it down (I wouldn’t have taken), and told this other company that I got an offer, which resulted in the recruiter speeding up my 2nd interview. After the interview, they said that they’d need another interview and to speak to my refs before going forward, and that if I have an offer, they don’t want me to hold me back from taking it. Mind’s kind of in a jumble after this long process. Thoughts from my fellow fish?
