Do Stammerers Have A Good Chance In High Stake Job Interviews?

Are stammerers in a disadvantaged position during job interviews?

I wonder if the interviewers will finish asking their questions or allow the

applicant to finish answering the questions before they ask him to leave.

please this thread is not meant to be insulting. However the sarcastic comment made by the poster at the tail end of her statement made it seem insulting.

That cld have been on the lighter note though.

I do have a suitor who is a chronic stammerer though,he is doing so well.and even has his own company with lots of foreign partners.

I must say i hardly understand what he says and its kindda puttting me off.very very good looking and classy though.

Stutterers just need to know their stuff.they might just need to be a little above board you know for their difficulty to be ignored esp in this country where there is hardly any considerations for the physically challenged.

Picked interest i this topic. My financee kind of had this issue to contend with but after some peroid of mentoring/coaching, she overcomed that fear, treat & trauma associated with the Job seeking/Stammaring. She presently works for one of the best companies in Nigeria after having rejected more than 4 plum jobs in the Oil, Insurance , IT services & Manufacturing sectors.

1. You need to be clear prospect for your prospective employer. Make sure you establish that in ur interviews

2. You need to accept ur imperfection, no denial. But be quick in converting the imperfection into your winning point.

3. We all need God's grace & favor. Strenght & Might as failed and will continue to. Only God can save.

First off; this is an insensitive topic. Two; i am not a stammerer.

I know lots of stammerers who have high profile jobs. I read someone mention shlumberger and not employing stammerers; dude should shut up cos he/she don't know what he/she is talking about.

It's not always the best thing for both employer(in one man business) and employee to stammer, the employee will almost develop hypertension.

I know some tricks that can help stammerers - really:

1) While practising on your own, try reading out loud while holding your tongue down with a teaspoon - practise frequently and you'll find that you are in better control of the muscle in your tongue.

2) Harden your lips into muscles till they feel like two strong tight ropes, then read as many articles in a newspaper out loud. It may sound easy but its not. With time you'll gain control over your lip muscles as well, and you'll be flowing like a player.

( I actually know a chronic stammerer who speaks perfectly only when he's toasting babes - I swear!! Any other time, ha, u'll want to slap him. His friends started thinking he was just pretending 'cos he kept getting all the babes, lol!!)

I think you just need to keep your cool I had this classmate back in school we tot he'd have issues with project/seminar defense but, he just took it easy and trust me he did well all of us gave him a standing ovation.

And the examiner was wondering why we stood up.

Just take ur words one at a time.

All da best
