A person with a disability is defined as someone who has, or considers themselves to have, a long-term or recurring issue that impacts one or more activities that others may consider to be a daily function. This definition also includes the perception among others that a disability exists. Google knows that 90% of disabilities on campus (and 70% of disabilities among the general population) are invisible, and candidates with all disabilities are encouraged to join The Lime Network and take full advantage of the benefits it offers.

...and some more Things
Career Corner: Juggling Multiple Offers
So you’ve had an offer come through. Maybe even multiple offers. What do you do??

First, take a deep breath, and take stock of your situation. What are the details of the offer(s)? How do they compare to your goal, or to your other offers? It can help to make a “pros and cons” list to lay your options out in front of you. 

Ask questions of the HR contact. Their job is to get you ready for your new job, and that includes answering all your questions! You will never be a pest when inquiring about the details of a job offer. 

Finally, it’s okay to ask for time to think. You rarely need to make a decision immediately after receiving an offer. Thank the recruiter and ask “When do you need to hear back from me?” Then, take the time to do the steps above. 

You’ll find tons of useful Negotiation Resources on SuccessWorks’ website. 
Still need help? Make an appointment with a SuccessWorks Career Advisor to talk about your offer.
