Suitable jobs for adults with Autism
There is a common misconception that those diagnosed with Autism are unemployable. This is far from the truth. In fact, many adults with Autism lead very successful careers.
This is because many behaviours and tendencies found in individuals with Autism translate well in work environments. These include:
- Attention to detail
- Completing tasks with clear end goals
- High levels of passion and enthusiasm
- Comfortable with repetition
- Follow and prefer logical processes
- Require little social interaction
At Jobfind, we consider your individual circumstance and tendencies to match you with a job that not only works with your strengths and develops your existing skill sets, but is a position you can maintain over a long period of time.
Although there are many types of jobs and careers that people with Autism work well in, it’s also important to keep in mind that certain jobs or work environments may be more suitable than others
