Find work with a medical condition – injury experts in Ruislip
If you have a medical condition which affects your day to day life then you may have to take some time off of work to recover. With some illnesses and injuries, however, the recovery period could be months or even years, and in this time you will have to work if you are able to.
When it comes to finding a job with a long standing medical condition, employers are not allowed to discriminate against you because of your illness. It is important that you are honest about your limitations, but if this does not affect your ability to do the job then the employer still has to consider you for the role. Here are some tips on acing a job interview when you have a medical condition.
- Know your illness well. You need to let your employer know exactly what your illness is and how it is likely to affect your work. For this you need to know in detail what your illness is and what your symptoms are, as well as how the illness will change as time goes on. If you know all of this then you should also be able to answer any questions posed in your interview about your condition.
- Find work that suits your condition. If you have a leg injury that makes it difficult to stand then you won’t be looking for a very physical job. Similarly, if your condition makes you tired easily then you should stick to part time or freelance work so that you can manage your job against your condition.
- Focus on your strengths. Work out what you can do easily and competently, and the things you can do which are not affected by your condition. If you can find a job which fits in with your condition and your strengths then it may not affect your work at all. You should also focus on your strengths in the interview for any job, and not try to focus too heavily on your condition and how it limits you.
