Neurodiverse

Information and resources for those who identify as Neurodiverse.

While there are many types of neurodiversity, much of the job search information focuses on the Autism Spectrum disorder. Many individuals on the spectrum may have a particular talent for strong focus, a capacity for working with numbers, non-visual ways of thinking, and/or abilities to do repetitive tasks, all of which may counterbalance some of the social aspects of the job applications process that are often more challenging.

With impacts of these challenges on interviewing, networking and workplace environmental conditions, how do you navigate the job search process, identify companies who celebrate and accommodate neurodiverse needs and prepare for interviews to best showcase your skills and qualifications?

In light of your own personal challenges, how do you advocate for yourself and create processes to accommodate for these challenges?  You may need assistance in the organizational and communication aspects of the job search process, particularly if you are on the spectrum or have an anxiety disorder. It’s important to understand what goes into the job search process and find strategies to succeed in these tasks.
