Hire Autism, the employment initiative of the Organization for Autism Research, functions as a job board for those on the autism spectrum who are seeking employment. In addition to this function, Hire Autism also houses a Resource Center to support its users. The Resource Center provides information for both job seekers and employers.
Businesses posting jobs on the site can view basic information about autism, the interview process, and possible workplace accommodations.
Individuals on the autism spectrum can use the Resource Center for resume and interview preparation advice, as well as information on transportation and understanding how to dress for a position. After being hired, individuals can still look to Hire Autism for tips on how to be effective workers and maintain their jobs long term.
- Interviewing your applicant with autism
- Training your employee with autism
- The autism-friendly workplace
Employers and job seekers can also keep up with Hire Autism’s latest initiatives by following the Hire Autism Facebook page, where they can get information on new job postings, program successes, and employment tips.
