Job interviews can give anyone the jitters; for Jeff Davis, they were torturous.
Since about age 10, Davis has had a stutter. He endured laughter from peers throughout school, but he refused to let his disability stop him from pursuing a career in public relations. Still, it hasn't been easy.
"All of that emotional baggage you had as a kid comes right back to you, and you feel, 'I'm not good enough. They're not going to hire me because of this,' " said Davis, 52, of Atlanta, Georgia.
