Disability + Job Application

According to an Opinium survey, disabled people have to apply for 60% more jobs than non-disabled people. While 69% of non-disabled applicants are invited to a job interview, only 51% of applications from disabled people result in a job interview. Since two in five are not confident about finding a job and 27% believe they are less likely to be hired due to their disability, more than half of disabled people apply for jobs they are overqualified for feeling their disability would make them a less attractive candidate (via).
