interviewers mouth after exchanging greetings is, "You sound horrible." First a quick background on me.. I had an accident when I was small and have a paralyzed vocal cord as a result of it. So I get asked about it a lot. I tend to sound sick. All the time. Now I've been unemployed almost 5 months, so I'm applying to any type of job that I have any type of work or educational background in. This was a job where I'd be on the phone a lot, so obviously not ideal for me.. but I kinda need to get paid yesterday. He asked me if I would be interested in other positions there and I said yes. But the damn interview only lasted about 10 minutes. He said they are just pre-screening people. Bullshit. You do that over the phone. Anyways.. I didn't think it would be the brightest idea to let him know that I always sound like that, and to let him think I am just sick at the moment. What's the best way to go about this, considering communication skills are generally one of that is very high up on the list of things most employers are looking for? I usually just play it by ear and usually don't mention anything about it unless the interviewer does.
