Will having a childhood psychiatric problem stop me from getting a job in health insurance company?

Will having a childhood psychiatric problem stop me from getting a job in health insurance company?

It shouldn't: Is this childhood problem still active, and are you still in treatment for it? If it has resolved or is under good control, you should be able to do any job you choose and are trained for. Employers cannot request your medical records, or make hiring decisions based on disability. They can ask about your ability to perform a job, though -- and they can review your credit report. ...Read more

Would having a long history of depression affect a persons ability to benefit a clinical psychology program?

Would having a long history of depression affect a persons ability to benefit a clinical psychology program?

My thoughts....: I am assuming that you are asking about becoming a clinical psychologist. Most people who get into the mental health profession have suffered in some way. We can draw on that experience to develop empathy & understanding. However, I do believe it is essential to have dealt with your demons ( or at least the big ones) before dealing with another's demons. It is not uncommon for psychiatric or >. ...Read more

Will being pregnant prevent me from passing a work physical for a cna job?

Will being pregnant prevent me from  passing a work physical for a cna job?

Shouldn't: The longer answer is: it depends on the physical. If you are expected to do something dangerous to your unborn baby, then it will. But i can't imagine a scenario that you would be asked to do something that dangerous. Very important - let them know that you are pregnant up front. Always be clear so they can't say that you withheld information to get the job. Good luck and congrats! ...Read more

Pre employment health questionnaire for regular desk job finance. Should i declare mild childhood asthma? Have had no symptoms since 10 years.

I wouldn't.: At age 25, with a asthma free history of 10 years, i agree with you prior diagnosis of "childhood asthma." as is often the case, you appear to have outgrown the condition. Since you employment situation appears to be sedentary, this prior medical history has no bearing on you being employed.
