Have you checked out the recently updated AccessComputing Employment Resources page lately? Whether you’re still in the middle of your studies, getting ready to graduate, or currently job hunting, you should! We’ve been expanding and adding resources, and links are divided into sections, which are expanded and updated whenever we discover new resources.
The section on Disability- and Neurodiversity-Focused Employment Websites has been expanded significantly. Some of the sites focus exclusively on job listings for companies that are actively searching to diversify their employee base with individuals who have a disability of any type, while several of the sites specialize in autism and neurodiversity. Among the employment sites focusing on neurodiversity, there are several that specialize in providing mentoring for job seekers, and there are a few sites that offer support and training for companies seeking to hire employees with disabilities.
If you’re interested in or considering working overseas, there are two employment sites for that; they both include listings for jobs in the US, but also include job listings for Europe, Canada, South America, Australia, and India. A few of these employment sites also include internships, and many of them provide advice on conducting a job search. Every site on the AccessComputing resource list includes a brief blurb to indicate their particular focus or specialty.
Other sections on the Employment Resources page include a list of corporate-specific recruitment sites, such as Microsoft’s Neurodiversity Hiring Program, and a list of business tech companies that are particularly interested in hiring employees on the autism spectrum for work in fields like data analytics, software and application development and computer engineering. We recommend pursuing these resources; if you have others you would recommend, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
