moderated Re: Question about JAWS at job interviews

Juan Hernandez

HI Michael,

I always take a laptop to any in-person interview. I try to make things as easy for myself and the company I am interviewing with. I feel like it shows a good sense of responsibility and preparedness, and often times like 95% of the time they will ask how do you do your work, and its cool to show the screen reader and braille display if you use one. That’s my two cents, I am sure others will disagree with me. But that is how I've found success.

Best and good luck!

Subject: Question about JAWS at job interviews


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,
