Graduated - Diagnosis - Graduation - Now what?Save as Favorite
I was diagnosed only a month after graduating college. I continued to work at a retail job I hated at I went though my treatment. I even took a few college classes to keep my brain intact. When I was pronounced "stable," I went back to school and just graduated with a Masters in Communications/Marketing.
I have been told by many of my professors as well as my therapist that what I have done in the past few years is miraculous. I have read some comments on this site that say NOT to divulge any medical information to an employer until you are hired. I view what I have done as a result of my diagnosis is an asset. I have very little experience in my field of study and need to concentrated more on what I can do for a prospective company, which include many of the things I demonstrated as a survivor.
I live in Massachusetts and healthcare is not an issue here as we have an individual mandate and it is illegal to turn someone down for a job or insurance because of a previous medical condition.
I would like some input regarding this and anything anyone can say will be helpful.
