As an individual with a strong resume (I have an MBA in Finance) and a great work record (I have dome IT project management for Deloitte, Kraft Foods and Nabisco who is looking for a job. I welcome this new rule as it allows an organization to take the risk in hiring qualified people who may be “different.” My slight speech impediment makes finding a job so difficult.
