New Hire Autism Website Coming Soon | Organization for Autism Research

OAR News

Hire Autism is excited to announce that work on an updated website has begun and will launch in time for 2022’s National Autism Awareness and Acceptance Month. The new website is being built in consultation with current Hire Autism job seekers and will have an updated color scheme and new features, such as a searchable resource library, an events calendar, an accessibility widget, a job board navigation tutorial, and personalized job alerts. With the site’s new capabilities, the Hire Autism staff plans to add more resources to the online library for job seekers, employers, and community members throughout next year.

A preview of the new Hire Autism website.This update will help Hire Autism better meet the needs of those within our network and move closer to realizing its vision of becoming the autism employment hub. Hire Autism’s current site was developed in 2016, prior to the launch of the program’s pilot phase in Northern Virginia, spanning 2017 to 2019. At the beginning of 2020, the program scaled nationally and has grown tremendously, both in the number of job seekers registering on the site and employers interested in hiring autistic talent.

If you would like to assist with any of our upcoming resource development projects or have suggestions, please contact Amanda Rioux at arioux @researchautism.org.
