Are you confused or overwhelmed by the job search process? Do you wish that someone would explain the unspoken rules about choosing the right job, writing a powerful resume, acing the interview, and meeting employer expectations once you are hired?

Getting and Keeping a Job for Adults with Asperger’s Syndrome explains — in detail — every step of the job search process … and how to be successful once you’re hired!

This interactive, 2-day workshop is presented by Barbara Bissonnette, author of The Complete Guide to Getting a Job for People with Asperger’s Syndrome and the Asperger’s Syndrome Workplace Survival Guide: A Neurotypical’s Secrets for Success.

You will learn how to identify the right job or career; determine the right work environment; write a resume that results in interviews; create a realistic job search plan; communicate your skills during an interview; meet employer expectations; determine whether to disclose and request accommodations.

Includes a workbook with tools, assessments and resources!
