moderated Re: Question about JAWS at job interviews

I make a habit of carrying my technology in a bookbag in any job situation, including interviews. Just in case. Not because I plan to pull at my laptop or iPhone and show them anything, but because that is what I do as a professional. I make a habit of that. I might need my pc for notetaking, or something else. But, I don't turn an interview into a show and tell. Don't make it a thing.

If it is difficult to carry your laptop, then don't.
Thanks,

Justin

Hi Rod,

Technical interviews may require coding exercises. I am not sure how people who can see do those. At my prior programming job, it was just a phone interview.

Pam, what did they do at your in-person interview?

Thank you,
Mike

´╗┐Why would you need to bring a laptop to the interview?

Employers are required to provide reasonable accommodations at all stages in the employment process.

Do you have specific concerns?

Hi,


When you went to job interviews, did you bring your own laptop with
JAWS, or did the employer provide JAWS as an interview accommodation?
I currently only have a desktop, but am willing to obtain a laptop. I
am assuming that I cannot expect any interview accommodations, and
that I should be prepared. Any thoughts?


Thank you,

Mike
