Imagine that you have a physical disability and that you need a wheelchair to get around. Consider that you are a qualified candidate in your field with the appropriate credentials to gain a job as a Human Resource Analyst at a company. Research what it means to need a wheelchair to get around,and list some potential ways in which your disability status may affect your employment, whether in the hiring process (benefits perceived to be needed, perceived ability to execute the position, etc.), in the execution of your job duties (transportation issues, accommodation issues, etc), or in other areas (getting around in areas that may be too narrow, stereotyping by fellow employees, etc).
When responding to another student’s post, list possible ways in which disability awareness may assist you in managing this hypothetical employee effectively.
