ADHD at Work
Disclosure at interview?
I’m sure everyone at my campus knows about my ADD because I have been disorganized and sometimes the last person to submit work assignments. But I have also been finding digital tools to help me manage my tasks and stay on track. When I finish the courses I am working on, I plan to pursue an administrative position in my school district. The trouble is my past record, and some of the administration-level people at my school are quick to throw people under the bus when interviewers refer to them.
—> So, here is my question: do I keep quiet about my ADD at an interview and hope nobody stabs my back, or do I disclose it as a disability - and describe how I have adjusted to it? Can I claim discrimination if the disclosure keeps me from getting the job?
