Dealing with Depression in a Job InterviewBy: Jim123 [30-March-10 6:17AM]
I am starting to interview for jobs. I have a secret that I don't know how to deal with. I recently graduated college but my grades suffered toward the end of my education because of bipolar depression. It affected me for two years before I was diagnosed. I am now starting the job interview process and wondering what to say about my GPA dip, and semester withdrawals. My early college career went very well, but suffered towards the end. My overall GPA suffered, but my major GPA remained at 3.00. It was the bipolar depression that made my grades suffer, not excessive partying. How do I talk about this issue with future employers, or do I not bring it up? I am on medication now and have been doing much better. I received A's and B's my last semester after starting the medication. What do I say or do in an interview?
