Depends on the job you are seeking, but in general i wouldn’t tell.

If you have to explain periods where you have been unemployed, you can say depression, stress, personal crisis - normies don’t understand SZ and that some people with SZ can work

Similar situation for me. I was expected to work after leaving hospital, I felt the pressure from family but not one person said it explicitly.

Now that I’ve done it and had a minor relapse due to it, they believe the condition is a bit more real. That’s what their issue was. An annoying illness to deal with socially forgetting how bad it is as is

No. I would not disclose your sz to them. They won’t hire you if they know. And if you tell them after you’re hired, they may find reasons to fire you. They’ll make it look like it wasn’t due to sz, but in reality, it will be because of the stigma of sz

No! if you have gaps say you traveled or cared for a sick relative. never ever say you were schizophrenic or depressed they wouldn’t hire you if you told them that.
