I am a journalism student and working on an article about the challenges disabled people can face in the job market. I am looking to talk to some disabled students about their experiences in full time or part time employment. ** specifically students who study or live in the Islington, Clerkenwell, Shoreditch and Hackney area, but no students from City University, as I study there.**
Any help would be greatly appreciated. You could just post some replies or send me some quotes. I do, however, need your name and some contact details. Thank you!

I don't live in those areas but I can give you some input anyway? The challenge I face in the job market is getting rejected because of my hearing disability. I know that if myself and somebody else had the same attributes but she had normal hearing and I have hearing loss - then I know 99% they'll choose her. They dont want to pay for the extra equipment to accommodate me to do the job properly. I have decided I'm not going to mention I've got a hearing loss in any jobs I apply for and if I get it then I will arrange for necessary things to be put into place. At least then we know it is discrimination if they reject me after offering a job because they found out about my hearing loss. So yeah that's the issue I face!
