There are definitely plenty of companies that accommodate, but I agree - many just say they're inclusive because it sounds nice and they don't want to be 'cancelled.'

Exactly I actually started a job this past August while taking my last class online and it was with a one of the biggest companies in the USA and i when I showed up the first day they did not accommodate at all it got to the point to where I physically couldn’t continue to work there so I left after 2 months to focus on my online class and look for other opportunities.

Have you had any internships in tech before? I noticed they are usually more supportive of rehiring individuals with disabilities than those without

I’m open for anything at the moment, it’s just hard to find a good entry level program with a good company thats fully remote.

I feel like there must be some out there. I’ll ask around my network and see if anyone knows of anything.

Thank you! Please reach out if you get any information!

Genuine question: why do people bill over 2100 in this market? I can see how wanting to be a “good associate” could get you to agree to go slightly above your hours requirement, but don’t understand how people end up billing 2500+ hours… do you really think you’d get fired if you said no to more work? Is someone legitimately forcing you to work that much? Don’t see how extra bonuses are worth it either.
