In a recent press release, Autism Speaks announced that it partnered with Rangam Consultants Inc. to create a new job portal intended to foster inclusive employment opportunities for people with autism. The innovative site, found at www.thespectrumcareers.com, will link employers and service providers with qualified applicants who have autism or other disabilities.
With the tool, businesses can easily publicize open positions, and job seekers can upload video resumes that establish their qualifications and demonstrate their interests to potential employers. The site also features job coaches and employment service providers who can assist both parties and offer autism-specific support.
The new job portal is free for both employers and job seekers.
