Meet Richard Shakespeare. Shunned by over 2,000 employers, he took matters into his own hands.

And clients are lining up!

This is really cool story. It seems that this experience actually forced him into starting a business. But wow 2000 jobs applications?? I don't think that if I were tracking my job hunt that I would continue after 300, lol.

Great Rivkah - and some of the internal comments were beautiful. Civil service doesn't want someone who scores 98% - because they'll show 'em up.

Duncan,

You can almost imagine the conversation in the boardroom:

"So guys, what do you think about that really bright, personable, highly-qualified gem of a human being who applied today?"

"You mean the one with cerebral palsy?????"

"Why yes, I do mean him."

"Put him on the do not hire list, that's all we need is a high achiever with a disability showing us up!"

This is the kind of story that makes my day and my week!
