Stepping into the job market can seem like a daunting odyssey, especially for those of us on the autism spectrum. That's why this episode of Adulting with Autism is a vital guide, revealing how to navigate employment post-graduation with savvy and confidence. We delve into the power of resources like vocational rehab, the art of setting achievable job expectations, and the finesse required to handle a job market that isn't always inclusive. Zee's employment journey exemplifies the stigma and biases faced, but also the triumph of securing a role at Kroger – a testament to the resilience many of us share. Beyond the job hunt, deciding the right balance between part-time and full-time work is crucial, not only for your career but for managing government benefits too. From the dynamic environment of food service to the concentrated pace of warehouse roles, this episode unpacks the various landscapes you might find yourself in. As we wrap up, I'm thrilled to let you know that your support has catapulted us onto all major platforms, making our community stronger and more connected. Stay tuned for our next episode, where my sister joins us to demystify employment-related insurance options, ensuring you're equipped with the knowledge to make informed decisions for your future. https://www.youtube.com/@MinorityMindset/featured
