Video clip: Kevin has found that being open about his conditions in job interviews is good, even though he knows employers cannot ask about it.

And quite often I got to employer – interview and say I have this asthma that's not controlled, on occasion I've had to go into hospital, and it's usually I find quite good just to be out, be open with that at the first possible opportunity, so that employers know.

But employers cannot ask about a condition. I personally feel that it's best for me to be open and honest, right from the start, say I have this condition. I've generally not found that really a hindrance when I've looked for work.
