The Autism Society of Greater Phoenix, along with our partners at DES, have had the great opportunity to host 3 Autism Job Fairs in the Phoenix area over the last two years. Hundreds of teens and young adults had the opportunity to speak with employers willing and excited to hire them. We hope to continue to host one Autism Job Fair each year.
Sensory friendly job fair for job seekers with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Hiring employers will be split into several rooms to eliminate noise and crowds. Educational workshops are available before and during the event. Registration is required for the following time slots 10AM – 11AM, 11AM – 12PM, and 12PM – 1PM.
9:30AM – 12PM
9:00AM – 9:45AM
This workshop is an opportunity for employers to learn about employing adults with ASD and typical accommodations to help them be successful in the workplace.
Job Seeker Workshops
9:30AM, 10:30AM, or 11:30AM
These 30-minute workshops are designed to educate adult job seekers with ASD and their parents/job coaches about the job fair, how to find a job, and keep a job. Attendance is strongly encouraged, but not required.
10:00AM – 1:00PM
Adults with ASD (and their parent/job coach if desired) meet with prospective employers and provider agencies individually.
