Job interviews can be nerve-wrecking for a lot people and with the anxiety levels high, people tend to fumble up their interviews. Even the most confident of people can be caught unawares with the sort of questions that the employers come up with. While nervousness is normal with most people, the level of nervousness and anxiety will be at an all time high for stutterers trying out a job interview. This is because many employers prefer non stutterers to stutterers because they do not trust the efficiency of a stutterer. While some jobs genuinely can not have stutterers because of the nature of the job, some employers deny stutterers the job for no apparent reason.
Stutterers have a disadvantage when it comes to provoking their talents but it must also be understood by them that many famous people have proved merit despite the stuttering problem. This must encourage the stutterers to try their best before giving up on something. Although it is understandable that stutterers get jittery right before the interviews, it is necessary that they keep their cool to perform well in the interviews. This results them from worsening their problem of stuttering and helping them in facing the interview better. Confidence in themselves and their ability must be developed before the interview so that they do not falter in their approach to the interview.
Another thing that the stutterers have to do in an interview is to inform the employers of their disability so that it does not look like they are hiding their negatives from the employers. It also puts the stutterers in good light to employers that they are able to understand their setbacks and make adjustments accordingly. Also, confessing to stuttering makes the stutterer more confident as they do not have the fear that their disability will be found out and also makes relieves the employer of the misconception that the candidate is extremely nervous.
Although stutterers tend to accept their disability upfront in interviews, there are some employers who resist from selecting them because of their disability. This attitude must change and employers must realize that stutterers have the same potential and are capable enough like other candidates. Selecting jobs must be based on merit and not on their disabilities other than the job requires heavy talking. Some countries also allow reservations for severe stutterers and this must be provided to them if they are considered disabled in any way.
