This was what was said to me awhile back when I was seeking advice on going for a job. The person was impressed with my CV and tapped into something that I’ve thought about often when trying to establish myself in an interview situation and in a workplace.
Whilst I think that it’s got easier to establish yourself in the workplace if you have a disability, or maybe it’s because I’m getting older and I have proven my ability, I have always felt that I have had to work twice as hard to prove to my abilities to employers yes, but also my work colleagues. Not that I’ve ever had any particular comments I would hasten to add, but I wonder if it’s a pressure I put on myself than what is thought be others?
What do you think about this?
