Interviewing Skills for Job Seekers with Physical Disabilities:
A Five Point Strategy for Successful Interviewing

The art of successful job interviewing is a skill few of us attempt to master. After all, we don't expect to spend much of our lives answering questions about why we are the most qualified person for the job. But one successful interview, which may last no more than half an hour, can change how we spend the rest of our lives. For a person with a physical disability, successful interviewing includes coping with this mindset: "Can she do the job in spite of her condition?" The job candidate must develop a successful job strategy of overcoming the interviewer's preoccupation with the disability. That is the main point of this video training program.
