Tips for managing college student life when you have a chronic illness - from a student living with Hashimotos and Ehlhers Danlos Syndrome.

Almost two months ago I posted this article about the truth of living with chronic illnesses as a college student – the responses were amazing.

There are a few pros and cons of phone interviews, one of the best parts is that you are able to have anything open in front of you to reference during the interview. This allows you to prepare answers ahead of time and stay consistently focused on what the company needs for this specific position easily, which you cannot do in face-to-face interviews.
