On the topic of disability - advice on when to disclose disability during the interview process? (I’m leaving gov for private tech space) For reference: I had 4 rounds of interviews with a company last week. First 3 went great! The last was with the CCO, and I had a rough moment of aphasia (part of my disability), and I tried to explain after the fact, that’s what happened, but he didn’t seem perceptive. I’ve tried disclosing at the beginning but found that I got fewer call backs.

Sorry to hear that, I hope that the CCO maybe did some more research on the condition and is more understanding of your situation

That's tough, sorry to hear that. Honestly, I think you dodged a not so great place if they didn't really recognize that. I know that's easier said than experienced, but at least now you know how they would've dealt with you in the workplace. The only advice I can give is to keep applying and hopefully someone else can chime in with more specific advice. Best of luck!

I've checked it off on an application before and then just not had the need to bring it up again. Either they're fine with it or peace

Might be off topic, but guys please, take care of your health. I've been rejected by all companies in the last 2 months. I had my Walmart interview today and it went really well. And guess what? I got a rejection email. I felt dizziness while working and fell down today. I had to go to the doctor due to the anxiety and stress I was carrying since the last 2 months. It has affected my health. It's important to push yourself to achieve your goals, but don't forget to "Live" in the process.

The location has firm rules against doing what she did, so now they’re trying to investigate and want to interview me.

In honor of National Voter Registration Day, The New Yorker released the transcript of a previously unpublished interview with James Baldwin, who gave a first-hand account of "Freedom Day 1963," a Black voter-registration drive in Selma, Alabama. Baldwin's descriptions from that day are so vivid and detailed that you can feel the fear and anger of the event. If you have a couple of minutes, I highly recommend you read it.

I want to become a United State Supreme Court Justice but I know you have to practice law as a lawyer first. What can I do to help myself out?

A year full of hard work and they offer poor bands and even pathetic hikes. God knows what is wrong with this company. Loyal employees do not matter for them anymore. After 8 long years with this company, it feels like I would have never wasted so much time here.
