Mention Cancer At InterviewSave as Favorite
I applied to a job 9 months ago, right before I discovered I have breast cancer. I just received a request to interview as a position just opened up that is ideal for my qualifications.
I finished chemotherapy and my mastectomy, but I'm about to start radiation in the next few weeks.
The doctors and I agree that I will be well enough to work, but as far as scheduling goes, I have radiation every day, and this will likely either cut into my morning or my afternoon during the work day.
I was wondering whether I should mention that I have cancer during my original interview. Since I'm still going through treatment I know that at some point I will have to broach the subject of my frequent doctors appointments.
When is the right time to do this, and how should I bring it up?
