Must I go to the job interview?

A: Yes. If you are scheduled for a job interview, you must attend the job interview. You must dress appropriately and have a positive attitude. Initial job interviews are generally used to see if the employer feels you have the qualifications and abilities they are seeking. Keep in mind the vocational counselor should have “pre-screened” the job to make sure it is appropriate based on your work restrictions and your educational background. If the interviewer advises that the job requires you to lift 100 pounds and your doctor has given you physical restrictions that prevent you from lifting 100 lbs, then you need to make the interviewer aware of your limitations and make sure you immediately tell your vocational counselor, if you have one.

We can assist you in making sure you are treated fairly during the job search process.
