  • oral interview with injury

    I tripped and fell down a few steps, injuring my ankle last night. Its a possibility that I may need crutches, should I give the personnel dept. a heads up before showing up later on today?

    Or act like nothing happened and just show up?

    I traveled 8hrs to get here and the pain started up about half way through the drive.

    Any suggestions will help! Thank you.

    Elevation and ice. Go to a pharm or box store and get a splint or a wrap that you can wear under your suit. I wouldn't mention anything unless it is very obvious that you are gimping around.

      My thought is that if you're able to make the interview without too much pain, you should do so. If you're limping and gimping, they'll probably ask you about it. Simply tell them what happened.

      Once more, if you're able to drive safely, if you're not in a lot of pain, do the interview. Just my .02, and good luck.

        I injured my back (lumbar strain) a week before doing my 2nd interview... didn't say anything and tried not to look hurt

          I'm going to the interview no matter what. I can't put any weight on it so I am definitely going to need crutches.

              Done. ..it wasn't a problem at all. However, climbing the stairs in crutches caused me to be short of breath when the interview began. I hope it was not mistaken for a nervous mannerism. Got my fingers crossed! Thanks for all the suggestions.

                  We actually DID have a blind person apply at the penitentiary.


                  FULL DISCLOSURE:
                  One of the prison industries where we train and employ inmates was the "Braille Shop" where books for the blind were made.

                  This person had various certifications that would have made him a valued employee had we been able to hire a blind person in prison setting
