Hi Christine and friends
I have recently completed my PhD, and have now begun this painful process of job seeking. Have applied to close to fifty places so far, mentioning each time blindness in the cover letter. Have got only two interview calls so far. Can't say if it is due to this factor or general job market conditions.  
                kind regards                        Mazhar

Hi Christine,


I made blindness clear in my letters of application.  I applied to about 100 places each year.  I moved five times before I obtained my tenure track position.  I obtained visiting positions each time before.  And anyway, if you don't mention blindness, your letters of recommendation surely will, so you would do well to beat them to it, so that it can be discussed on exactly your own terms.  


All The Best

Hi All,

  Thanks to everyone for the very helpful responses! It seems the majority of the views deal with waiting until just before or during the interview. Again, thanks to everyone!

With warm regards,
