I've been filling out job applications on line and I am wondering about the section where they ask you to "voluntarily declare" any of the assorted disabilities you may have. My first reaction is that it's really none of their business and I always thought it was probably a kiss of death to put anything down in that section. I assumed my application would be filed quickly under the "do not hire" list. But lately I am starting to wonder. Is there some sort of quota a company has to meet and would a disability actually HELP my chances of getting an interview? I am a recently diagnosed diabetic, which is listed as one of the classified "disabilities". I don't see it as that though. I just have to watch my diet, take my meds, and I am good to go. That's why I wasn't declaring it. But should I? If I helps m get the job....why not? Anyone have any thoughts if it puts me on a short list that they have to offer an interview to? I'll gladly step up and I press the heck out of them if I can only get in front of them. How would you fill out that section?
