The biggest challenge I faced when looking for employment was whether or not they were going to give me a fair shake, I couldn’t get interviews, it couldn’t get in the door, you could almost see it on the employers face, when I come rolling in, all of a sudden, they’ve decided she’s not going to fit people.
Don’t tend to give you a chance to prove, so it was so awesome to come here to synchrony and find out that they’re overlooking that synchrony is a great example of a company that doesn’t pay lip service to an idea first and foremost synchronous commitment to ensuring we have a diverse and inclusive culture and body of employees that represent our marketplace.
It’s not only an altruistic pursuit, we do this, because it’s good, there will be a lot of mistakes I thought we were going to make, we avoid it, because we were guided by experts, we hire disability solutions and they were able to Shepherd us to engage in the community its companies like synchrony that provide us the disability community with the opportunity to showcase our talent and our values and disability solutions.
They train me into finding out how to apply myself at a job that made me like that, so I wasn’t alone, made me feel like there are other people out there, it’s not me, I happen to see Keith Meadows, the great coach told me and helped me with the interview process, gave me confidence, because he saw that I had an ability not a disability, it’s a welcoming culture and they feel that they’re being evaluated based on their merits and their abilities which is huge.
I have a learning disability, so I caught more of a learning ability, because I think different than others, so I longed in different ways when somebody gives you a little bit of confidence and even sees it looks at negative thoughts where it looks at positive, that’s what gives you confidence.
They’re going to look at it, if I portray confidence, there maybe not look at me in that manner, it’s been very inspiring, honestly it’s inspired me seeing the work ethic and the drive the type of employees that we’re recruiting through this for the next phase of our project.
I think it will shift to getting from puke, getting people hired to ensuring that we have an environment where people are growing and getting promoted, my goal is to go up the ladder and show that you can be successful even if I get out of this chair which is my bowl.
That’s mindful. I want to grab this chair. I would like to go this chair, but even if I think I would still stay here, I’m still working here, so I must be doing something right, so I would never have thought that I would be in a position that I never thought that I will be able to make a paycheck again.
So if you’re struggling and you get the same here in the headlight look every time that you go into employer being deafblind wheelchair or some other disability, here’s your chance, the main thing is never to give up yourself on whatever job of employment that you want to go that you can get it, that’s the first step, whether you have a disability or not, you still have hope and you can still accomplish whatever you set your mind to.
