Autism and Finding Jobs in Technology

Statistically, individuals with autism face difficulties finding gainful employment, but a non-profit in San Francisco is homing in on tech jobs for people on the autism spectrum. Andy Aczel, co-founder of  “The Specialists Guild,” explains that people with autism can be superior at particular jobs, saying, “they think outside of the box because they don’t see any box.”

People on the autism spectrum often have the innate ability to regularly hyper-focus and look at the details, and this interesting video interviews two individuals with autism who work for The Specialists Guild.
