Jobs for Autism

July 16th, 2016

I’m pleased to get word of a revamp of the Jobs for Autism site. The new editor is going to be posting testimonials of autistic professionals who found career paths in various professions and at which companies. This is highly useful information that is simply not available online, and certainly not curated into one resource. Autistic job seekers have an extremely difficult time communicating and demonstrating their competence and talent in a way that shouts louder than the long held stereotypes that continue to plague many minds. So any victories over those backwards worldviews will be fuel to keep trying and create awareness to the business owners and decision makers in the corporate world.
