Find a Career that is Right for You, a free webinar from the Asperger/Autism Network, featuring Tom Bergeron
Tuesday, February 13, 2018
There are many factors in deciding on a career path. What are my interests? What is my working style? Are there jobs in the industry I’m interested in? How well do they pay? How does being on the spectrum affect my decision? The path to most careers is through a college education, but with education costs skyrocketing it makes sense to evaluate careers options before entering college, not after graduation. There is even the possibility of exploring careers that require training, but not a degree.
This webinar explores ways to identify careers that are a good match. It highlights strategies for landing the right job beyond “getting the degree.” The webinar will also highlight a few organizations that are making a concerted effort to hire individuals on the spectrum.
Finding a career that is right for you: Tom Bergeron is the co-founder of InventiveLabs, a career (and business) incubator focused on college-aged adults with dyslexia, ADHD, and/or ASD. The Lab runs a hands-on program helping individuals find their path forward by exploring career and school options, or maybe even starting their own business. Tom has worked at various start-up companies helping to bring new products to market. He uses the skills he learnt in business to help individuals find their “market fit”. Tom experienced many challenges in school, but by charting his own path he found success in business. He noticed the traits that hold some individuals back in school can actually be their advantage in the workplace. He is now committed to helping the next generation find their path forward and launch their careers.

Few college students feel expressly confident that they have the skills and knowledge to find a job or succeed in a workplace, according to a new study.
