Understanding How Stereotypes Negatively Impact Autistic Talent


Imagine being on the autism spectrum and entering into a job interview where you know that up to 90% of people like you are unemployed or under-employed. What does this do to your confidence? How would you work to disguise your autism during the interview? What stereotypes might exist among your potential co-workers or the person interviewing you? For many, these are impossible odds that can cause stress and a crushing loss of self-confidence.

As you will see in this video, auticon is different. auticon sees autism for its benefits, particularly in the information technology services sector. auticon exclusively hires adults on the spectrum as quality assurance analysts, software developers, and in traditional IT roles where they work onsite or remotely for technology clients.

In this 3-minute video, members of auticon’s team boldly share their experiences with stereotypes, unemployment, and express a desire to prove their value in the workplace.
