Job Interview Woes and Wins

The job interview is a difficult hurdle for job hunters on the autism spectrum. Too often talent gets stopped at the door by an awkward interview experience. At the July 7 AASCEND Job Club  Natalie Dunnege will tackle this problem head-on. She will speak about job interviews—how to do them, and about specific issues that come up with neurodiversity interviewing.

Natalie will also talk about BINC, the Recruiting Service company where she works. BINC helps companies find the employees they need to grow in new directions. This job club meeting is a good opportunity to learn about the ins and outs of job interviewing from someone who interviews people all the time. Come with your experience and your questions!

As always, attendees on the spectrum will offer their experience and perspectives throughout the program.

Special thanks to the Autism Studies Department at SFSU for volunteers!
