[NABS-L] Disclosure of Blindness

Hi Abby, I would not personally disclose my blindness in the application or the interview. Just speaking based on things I’ve done and some advise I’ve gotten, I would just let them think what they do. When you fill out the application, just fill out what you’re good at, and why you’d like to work for them. The same in the interview, just tell them why they should hire you, no matter if they can see that you’re blind or not. Let them see how skilled you are and that they would lose out by not letting you work for them, and then you can talk about your disability when you get the job, for if you need to make any accommodations or something like that. I hope this helps.

I know the can will  make it obvious, but I just  wondered  if   any of you guys have experience of if I should disclose my  disability or what I should do.
