Workshop: Your Next Job Application (Nov)

Date/time range
Tuesday 21st November 2023 6:30pm – 8:00pm

A Zoom workshop on applying for jobs if you stammer.

Workshop outline

Talk to anyone about applying for jobs, and it's often followed by an avalanche of questions:

  • Should I apply if I stammer? 
  • What's the best way to structure my application? 
  • Should I let them know that I stammer? If so, when? And how?

And don't get me started on interviews. You might be thinking:

  • I just don't know how they want me to answer some of the questions. 
  • What if stammering gets in the way of me responding in the way I want to? How do I deal with that? 
  • Can I get adjustments to typical interview processes so they're a better fit for me as someone who stammers?

In STAMMA's Employment Support Service, we're often asked these questions, so this 90-minute Zoom workshop covers these issues and more. This is a really useful session if you stammer and are applying for a job or promotion, or thinking about applying for a job or promotion.
