The co-op- and job-search process can be especially challenging for students on the autism spectrum due to difficulties navigating the complex social interactions required. Employers have noticed that candidates on the spectrum often have unique skill sets, but may have a difficult time demonstrating their skill sets in a traditional recruitment process. Candidates on the autism spectrum are also an important factor in employers’ progress toward diversity and Section 503 utilization goals. This presentation covers how recruiters can ensure that their practices are inclusive for candidates on the autism spectrum.
