For me, interviews are bad things that must be endured. I know that I should see them as opportunities to show what I can do but the truth is that, like with exams, more often than not I stumble and I fall. So it is then that I’ve pretty much decided that in future I’m going to start declaring my aspergers as something they should know about before the interview – or at the very least, introduced it early on as a topic. It is, after all, a contributory factor to how I perform (or rather, don’t perform) and is also very much of the moment, too.

For whatever reason, today I didn’t. It was for a two month temporary contract at Oxfam working on their website/online shop. It sounds kind of cool and it seemed to be going well and with not much opportunity to talk about aspergers (after all, if successful they would invite me int for a face-to-face one tomorrow, and I could mention it then) so I didn’t…
