University student Jonathan Andrews, who has autism, told 5 live he got "a lot of advice" telling him to hide his disability when applying for jobs but eventually decided to ignore it.
The English student met up with James Gower, a consultant IT adviser with cerebral palsy, to discuss their experiences applying for jobs.
Gower says discrimination "does still happen in the workplace" but has seen a "dramatic" improvement, with employers becoming more aware of disabilities.
A survey released to 5 live Breakfast has found that three quarters of students and graduates with disabilities are concerned about being up front about their condition because they are worried they will be discriminated against.
