The response to my CV is alw!ys good, but when it comes to an interview the whole thing falls apart. I know I'd be a brilliant employee if someone would give me a chance, but they get put off by the difficulties I have speaking. Please help. Anon ——————————————————————————————————1/3—— 60 words max.

I come from a family with speech problems so I feel for you. But I also know that people can overcome the problems that are caused. I know it's a problem, but don't make it more than it is. Don't blame it for you not getting on in life. ——————————————————————————————————2/3—— 60 words max. Letters may be amended.

That way at least you get to discuss it and for them to express their feelings or fears around it. If you step into the problem first and voice it before they do it will show you have drive and initiative. ——————————————————————————————————3/3—— 60 words max. Letters may be amended.
