Making the Most of Job Fairs and Employer Events

The Kirby Cove Hike was delightful. See pictures below!

At the June 3 AASCEND Job Club, Dan Middleton and Keith Halperin will continue their series on proven job search and retention strategies. This month they will focus on making the most of job fairs and employer events, which are coming back in person. Dan and Keith will be interviewed by Job Club facilitator Michael Bernick. Job club member Mark Romoser will discuss his new job with the City of Oakland, and the rewarding of persistence. Attendees are encouraged to bring their experience with Job Boards, and questions about them.

Hike to Kirby Cove!

Stanford University is seeking autistic individuals, family members, and providers for autistic people, to participate in a working group on Sleep and Autism. Details below, now with clickable link!

Kirby Cove is one of San Francisco’s hidden gems–just a short walk from the Golden Gate Bridge’s north end, but feeling like a cozy hideaway in the wilds, and with spectacular views! On Saturday, May 20 AASCEND Board member and Pacific Crest Trail Hiker Paul Nussbaum will take us to the Cove! We’ll meet at 11am at the Headlands Parking lot (X on the maps). This is across Highway 101 from the Vista Point familiar to millions of tourists. There should be plenty of parking there, particularly if you get there closer to 10:30am. The Golden Gate Transit 130 bus stops near Vista Point at 10:40am, about a 3-minute walk (via the under-bridge walkway at Vista Point) to our parking-lot meeting place.

There are bathrooms and water at Vista Point and Kirby Cove. The hike is about a mile each way. We plan to sit down together to eat at Kirby Cove, so bring a lunch and something to drink. We’ll be walking on an unpaved road, so wear suitable shoes. Also check the weather and dress accordingly.

It will be fun to walk and talk together in such a beautiful place. See you there!


Who: Adults on the spectrum, family, professionals and friends all welcome!
