Hello My name is Kurt I am 95% sure I am an Aspie. The only jobs that will hire me are jobs in retail where I have to be around lots of people. This often ends badly for me. I cannot retain information if it is not of interest to me. I worked in the meat dept. at my last job and after five years still could not tell someone how to cook a beef roast because I don't care about cooking beef roasts. How can someone like me find a place in today's workforce. I also feel the assesments that they make you take during the application process are discriminatory towards people with Aspergers. Questions like do you like working with lots of people? I do not at all it makes me scared and stressed out however if I say no than my chances of getting the job go out the window. I think that is all have a grand day mates.

Hi All, I'm a 40yo guy that was diagnosed with PDD-NOS two years ago. I had a stable job in New Jersey working as a Human Resources Consultant for a consulting firm for 6 years. After I was laid off from there, I moved to Florida and had some temporary consulting work only for a few weeks each. I have not had any consulting work for the past year. My resume is great. I have a Master's degree in Human Resources and a Bachelor's in Communications. The problem I think is I don't interview well nor do I present myself well. While I was working, talking or leading groups for my clients has always been hard (especially new groups). My reason for posting to this group is two-fold: First, the obvious, I am looking for work for myself. I am seeking a job in Human Resources, Payroll, Benefits, or HRIS. If any of you know of a company out there that has a need for an HR or Payroll professional and can be sensitive to my social awkwardness, please contact me! The second reason for my post is to introduce myself and offer any help to anyone out there on ASD Spectrum that could use some Human Resources advice, understand employer perspective, or other job hunt advice, from someone who is on the spectrum. My email: Jason.Katz@Live.com

My 20 year old son with Asperger's desperately needs a job in the Raleigh, NC area. He has never worked so has no experience. We have been working with VR for almost two years and they haven't been able to find anything for him. He's a hard worker with chores at home but has major social anxiety which certainly shows in any kind of interview. I am a single mother on a very limited income with two younger children to support as well so we are feeling desperate for him to find work and start bringing in some sort of income. Is there any help out there for him?

I am looking for help gaining employment for my 25 year old autistic son. He is very good with his hands, detail oriented, quick to learn and a great helper. He is mostly non-verbal. Once he learns something he's got it for good. We have been waiting on VR but nothing has shown up. I was basically told to find him a job myself. I am a single parent and work full time and care for my own mother and disabled sister. It is hard for me to know where to start. He is bored and wants to do something. Please let me know what is out there. Thank you so much!

LYNN ROBERTSON said:   April 29, 2014 5:46 am PST
My son has Asperger's and managed a double major in computer programming and math (on the Dean's List) in college, but is without a job. He is terrible at networking and interviewing but quite capable in his field of interest, computer programming. He has refused help getting a job so this is my first attempt to post about him. He has been without a job for 17 months and I feel I must help him. You can look at his website if you search his name, Tyler Evan Robertson. Thank you for any help or leads in finding my son a job. On his own he has been too rigid in the jobs he was interested in and has no networking skills, but he could be a capable, almost gifted worker if he finds the right job fit.

I am an ILS worker in the San Francisco (East) Bay Area (Contra Costa County) and I work with a young man with autism who is currently employed in a "dead end" job. He is slowly working towards a Computer Science degree (programming focus) and is seeking a job preferably in a tech related field. He has attended San Jose State and is currently attending a local junior college, but is having trouble finding part time work that will allow him to take classes and remain living on his own. He has great difficulty socializing and exploring opportunities face to face. His current job, at a clothing store, required a tremendous amount of effort and family support to even obtain. If there are employers or people with knowledge of, or access to, resources that are "outside of the box" and willing to work with a bright young man, please contact me.

Hi, I am an Aspie and I just graduated from Northern Illinois University with a Bachelor's Degree in Animation and Film making. I have a part time job in retail while looking for a full time career in illustration, character design, video game design, or animation. But I haven't had much luck making art commissions. I have applied for an internship at PIXAR, but I am always worried about job interviews out of fear of saying something that would cost me a job. I often feel discouraged and inexperienced since all I can mostly do is art related. Please review my portfolio at: kemcspadden.daportfolio.com And please send me information on possible art opportunities, hopefully somewhere near Chicago just to get myself started. Thank you.

I am an Aspie. I don't normally admit it because I feel people should not be held back by things that psychologists say they have wrong with them. I am however, discovering that my lack of outgoingness is hurting my job hunt. I can talk to people I don't know without a problem, I just really can't initiate conversation with them - they have to initiate it with me. That and small talk bores me, making me seem disinterested, which hurts getting people to talk to me in general. I recently graduated college (with a music degree), and have struggled to find work. Unlike the average Aspie, Math and Science don't interest me, meaning I can't just go off and teach math in a state with a shortage, or work in a high demand science field. My interests are music and history, and what I've determined (from being a music education major) is that conducting choirs and bands is way too difficult (I can't concentrate on what I'm doing with conducting, and be listening to what the group is singing/playing). I've been successful in low paying customer service jobs in the past, only because initiating contact doesn't seem as hard when there is a good reason (like the customer wants to buy something - I want to make the sale, we have common ground to talk). As such, I need to find a decent paying job that I can do, where I don't have to initiate contact with people, that pays enough that I can start paying off my student loans, and feed/clothe/house myself and my fiancée (who is not a college grad, and cannot find high enough paying work to do all that for me to be able to take low pay or no pay work. Please, I need some strong and stable advice, or job leads. I'm extremely desperate. I live in South Dakota, but frankly I think my fiancée and I would be willing to move (on virtually no money) if it means I can begin working at something productive. I don't want to be trapped doing nothing forever!

I am concerned that no one is monitoring this website. Why are people allowed to advertise that they will give loans and Pay Day loans at that. They are using this website to prey on people and this needs to be monitored better of shut down.

Hello, I am a 16 year-old with ASD (high-functioning) that is looking for any job possible. I have not had very much luck applying everywhere I can. I have been looking for a job since I was about 14. I am an online gamer, so my typing skills are better than average. I am interested in working at a job like data-entry into a computer or Customer Service. I have a lot of experience as Customer Service being a Forum Moderator and Forum Administrator in my spare time. I do have some-what of an experience with software-support, as I do it as a hobby. My e-mail is korrigal@programmer.net (or, if you can't send it to that address, korrigal@nlts.me)

Hi, I am an individual with autism who ran for state legislator last year. I use to work but I am currently without a job and I have tried like a slave to get a job even if the job is crappy, cause I feel a crappy job is better than not being put to work at all. I live in Birch Run, Michigan so if anyone knows of any places in Saginaw or Genesee County Michigan that promise on the Holy Bible to hire autistic people for work, please point me in that direction. And if you think I should work outside of that area then you better be prepared to pay all my moving expenses and if you can't do that then please stick with the radius I suggested of Saginaw and Genesee County. Thank you

Sydney said:   March 21, 2013 9:08 am PST
I am a 22 year old woman. I have never had a job before because I get very flustered and anxious around people, I have trouble speaking around them. I have been on job interviews before but I can never get through them because I can be overly emotional, and I don't do well alone in public. But I am good with typing, reading, writing, and taking directions, just so long as they are clearly explained or written down. I am also very artistic and good with crafts. I have a high school diploma but no college degree, I would like to, but we can't afford it. I live in Spring Creek, NV and I really need a job. Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. sisteefreeman@gmail.com

Daniel said:   January 28, 2013 12:40 am PST
Hello, my name is Daniel, I am 19 years old and i never got a job (I was never even accepted enough to get an interview sadly) and I have been trying ever since I was 16 years old. I live in Sallisaw OK. I spent most of my life however in Oroville CA, and I have to say my luck on even getting an interview feels non-existent and the feeling of depression about it feels overwhelming at times especially since i just had a conversation with my girl of 4 years last October, said that if my luck don't change, she is going to give up on me (which I feel like is just kicking a man when he is down to be honest). We are both still virgins and plan to keep it that way for quite some time but... with my luck, I havent even got a call back from McDonalds (if that does not say anything about how far the problem goes...) I am not violent, I keep my pants where they should be (hate the baggy look as it is and feel like violence is not not the answer, hate raising my voice for anything its all not needed, delt with it enough when i was young from family not getting along) Any idea's on what may help me in my critical job problem?

Shane McCormick said:   December 12, 2012 3:26 pm PST
Hi everyone, my name is Shane. I'm 21 years old. I never wanted to admit this, because in doing so, I think I'm being weak but I need to so: when I was still a little kid, I was diagnosed as "autisitic" because of the way I didn't like to be around or talk to people or hug them/get close to them. I've always been extremely sensitive(even for a gay man) with my emotions and even now when I'm dealing with people I don't really know(depending on the type of person) I usually always sink inside my head and become extremely quiet. When this occurs, people assume there's something wrong with me and they assume I'm "sad" 'cause apparently I get a dark look on my face. I never notice it and I explain to them that I'm fine. Shifting gears, the reason I can't hold down a normal job where I have to deal with other people in a fast-paced environment is because of this severe social anxiety that has developed in me. I get far more frustrated and disappointed in myself than normal people do whenever I make a mistake, I can't memorize all the little tasks you have to do every day while at work(and therefore make more mistakes), and I can't be rushed on the job like normal people can because when I am I start hyperventilating and lose control over my hands and then become extremely clumsy. This has happened at every job I've had except when I worked for Liberty Tax Service, and that's only because all I had to do was stand in the street median and wave a sign wearing a silly looking Lady Liberty costume. Working in fast-food places, coffee shops, pizza places... I just can't handle all the pressure. Admitting that I have all these problems is a huge step for me. I don't want to be percieved as weak or like I'm just using this as an excuse. But I realize now that is just a childish virtue, and if I ever want the career I want or the help I need I'm going to have to admit that I have these problems. Any help I can get in finding a job would be appreciated! - Shane.

Hi. I'm a 22 year old male with a high functioning form of Autism called PDDNOS. I am currently looking for a job, but it is hard for me to find one with how the economy is. I have worked before for 8 months as a dishwasher in a nursing home, but I quit to attend college and also because my family moved from a northwestern suburb of Chicago, Illinois to Joliet, Illinois. I was attending college for 3 years and have gotten 50-some credits and I'm majoring in Computer Aided Design and Drafting/Graphics Design. Other things that interest me are baseball, Football, videogames, and cartooning/animation. I have currently moved back to the northwestern suburbs of Chicago and plan to attend classes again soon, but I need to find a job so that I can pay for the classes. I'm looking for any entry level jobs that don't require any experience, but I would prefer it if there were any jobs for dishwashing or other kitchen/restaurant jobs since I have some experience with those types of jobs. Contact me at zoinks28@hotmail.com or call me at (815)-514-1029 if there is anything available. Thank you.

I am 21 years old and getting ready for college. However, I am doing everything I possibly can to avoid taking out a student loan. I've been looking for a job, but the economy combined with my autism makes it difficult. The fact that I live in North Las Vegas, Nevada, makes it even harder to find a job. I am a hard worker and a quick learner, but my autism makes me appear awkward to others. Since I'm in college, retail jobs will do. My email is skatepunk172@gmail.com.

I'm a 16 year old girl with Autism Spectrum Disorder (high functioning Autism) and I would like to know what job opportunities are out there for people like me. I am considering attending Algonquin College (I live in Ashton, Ontario, Canada) and so I would like to know what sort of careers are out there for people like me so that I know which courses to take. I have an issue with my speech (I stammer) and I also deal with ADD. Being stubborn and unorganized are also some characteristics associated with my ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). However, there are good things that come with it. I'm a visual and tactile learner. I have an impeccable visual memory and a wide vocabulary that exceeds that of a 16 year old. I especially have an amazing memory for names, places, passwords/codes, and lyrics to songs. And so again, just please give me some names of careers that would suit me. Thank you.

i am autistic myself and find it just as difficult to find work suited to my needs and abilities and it is quite often frustrating every time you get turned down for not having the skills employers quite often look for in their candidates. i love making jewellery and everything to do with art and craft and it is a skill that is quite often ignored by employers and the government. if only this skill was recognised as a job opportunity it would earn me a living.

Hi, my name is Ashley Shoemaker, I'm almost 24 and have tried to hold down jobs in the past. My longest one was almost two years. I live in Portland, Oregon and have a big problem with social anxiety and communication with other people. I have Asperger's Syndrome and would really like to find a place that isn't intimidating or scary with a super long commute on public transportation (it puts me into panic attacks) and makes me really want to go to work every day. It's a really hard job market, and I'd really really like doing something that's a graveyard shift since I'm usually up all night anyway. I pick things up really fast and I work really hard, if there's something you can help me find that would be good for me, I would really like to hear it. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

My son Cristofer was diagnosed with Autism at age 2. Since then he has progressed in school and is currently being home schooled due to his lack of social and emotional skills. However, throughout the past 3 years his ability to play video games and find the glitches, etc. is vast. He wants to be a video game tester when he gets older and if anyone knows of anyone needed a tester please contact me. He doesn't even want to be paid for it he just wants to do something he is good at. He has beat every new game within a four hour time span. Please he just needs hope from someone willing to give him that hope. Thank you.

Hi. I live in Valpo, IN. I was finally diagnosed at 27; before then I felt lost and wondered why I was different and couldn't really get along with many people. My problem is that I'm still trying to figure out where I fit in. I'm currently in school, trying something new for the third time. I don't want it to be a waste. I feel like I'm a failure because I'm 30 and I haven't figured it out yet. I think a great idea for Aspies would be job shadowing. It would be great, especially for those of us who are visual. I wish I could have the chance to try out different jobs and "see" where I fit. Then I could figure it out for myself.

After trying for the last 18 months to attend the local community college, take on-line computer courses and attending a social vocational program I am finally going to start taking computer classes at an Adult Ed School. I will be looking for work in February, 2012. How do I get started? I live in Ventura County, in Southern California. Sincerely Yours, Garrett Brown

Anyone have an asperger connection in Southern Illinois near Scott AFB? My son is 22 years old and has Asperger's. Looking for a connection for him. He has not been able to hold a job or volunteer opportunity for longer than a day. It's not going well.

Hi. I am a woman with Aspergers syndrome living in Cornwall. I have not had a job in years (aside from a couple of 1-day things), despite always wanting to work. The only work I can find is of so little hours each week that I would actually be effectively paying THEM to work, and I can't afford to lose money like that. And everybody who used to help with monetary concerns like acquiring licences and stuff like that seems just to be saying "no" to everyone these days. I am physically fit, large and strong. I am experienced in martial arts. I have many other skills too, mostly creative, in areas like music and video games. I am training as a professional wrestler - or at least I was until I couldn't afford it any more (despite it only costing me £12 a week including travel). I hate not working. I hate it. It is a complete waste. I hate not training, too! I don't want to be stuck here. I love my homeland but I want to move up to where jobs are, so I can actually have a life. I am just totally lost here; I don't know what to do. I had to delete the rest of this comment because of the maximum word count. Please help, I need real, practical help. I can't spend the rest of my life begging for job scraps and getting handed none, I just can't.

I live in London, and am blessed with a wider range of skills than a lot of Aspies. However I find workplace politics distressing and bewildering. I am just recovering from 7 yrs' bullying in the workplace and need a new job where I can be productive and get satisfaction. Any good ideas?
