How do I make it known to an employer that I have severe anxiety?

Update:

I do undergo treatment, I take multiple medications and see several psychiatrists and psychologists but nothing works, I'm still struggling and treatment is a work in progress

  • If you get the job, have a chat with them in private and tell them.  You shouldn't tell them in an interview. They could be biased against your anxiety and decide not to hire you. 

    If it's that sever, see a doctor and get some thing to treat it with. Some medications can really help with anxiety.

    You don't. You treat it so its under control before you apply.

    Also the interview is usually more stressful than the job. (but not always)

    How do you make it known to someone that they're standing on your toe?  You say 'Excuse me, but you're standing on my toe!'

    Sit down with your boss, with the door closed, and TELL him/her that  you have severe anxiety!  That's the only way to make it known.
