Assistive Technology for Job Applicants
If you need assistive technology as a reasonable accommodation when applying for a job.
Are applying for a job? Do you need:
- The job application in an alternative format?
- A reasonable accommodation to participate in a job interview?
- A reasonable accommodation to participate in the hiring process, such as taking a test?
If you answered yes to any of these needs, notify the employer as soon as possible. Your request may be written or spoken; however, it is good practice to keep a written record of your requests.
An employer can’t refuse your application because you request a reasonable accommodation.
