Ever since I’ve been diagnosed with ADHD, it’s pretty much the first info I’ll give (proudly!) in a job interview!

1. I let them know about my challenges and the steps I’ve taken to “make up for them”, thus showing my adaptability and willfulness;
2. I tell them about the “quirks” of having ADHD : lots of energy, fast (outside the box) thinking, super problem solving abilities, positive and proactive attitude;
3. If they don’t have it in them to understand that you can be “different” and still contribute in a meaningful way to their mission, I’d rather not work with them!

So far, this attitude of mine has been working wonders… 🙂 Not saying it is the answer for everyone, though.

Proudly ADHD
