Regarding the drivers license requirement when driving is not an essential functions – why not just put in your state ID number? Regarding Dave’s comments about blueprints – what kind of field are you entering? Is this something connected with architecture or construction or engineering? Regarding starting over at the beginning of a career field, this is not necessary. You are bringing with you all of the skills and experience you have from previous areas of work. It is more a question of how to transfer these skills. Karen
