It is estimated that only 15% of adults with autism are in full-time employment. This is despite the fact that most are willing and able to work. The problem is that people with autism, Asperger’s Syndrome and similar challenges often find that they don’t fit in and look to a lifetime of long-term unemployment and exclusion from society. Take a look at any job vacancy and you will usually read something along the lines of “must be a team player, work well under stress and exhibit flexibility.” If you have autism or Asperger’s for example, you probably feel that these kind of attributes eliminate you from the selection pool before you have even applied. And there are more invisible barriers preventing people with autism and similar challenges from joining the global workforce. You may have the required education for a specific job profile but you never sat the exams. Or you might find job interviews very stressful, and therefore don’t perform well. Or you may have some specific requirements when it comes to your work environment that may seem strange or unreasonable to potential employers.
