    Disclosing Autism In Employment

    I’ve been interviewing for several jobs and have thought about disclosing my autism to the interviewer, but haven’t. I’m not sure if I should. I think I keep getting turned down for jobs because the interviewer reads my body language and notices something is off.

    He went to an interview! Yay!

    Okay, he couldn't sleep for two nights before the interview day. That sucks, we kinda argued because I will get tired too when he's insomniac. Like, I asked him many times about how about you wear a necktie; then he said no need and said I was nagging him. But when we reached the place, he...

    I have an interview for a "till operator" position at the Children's Society on 28.9.18

    Topic. I originally booked the interview for next Friday at 10 AM, 21.9.18, then Mum rang and said we're going to my Brother's in London next weekend so I had to change the interview to the following week. I know it's volunteering again, and literally doesn't pay anything, but work is work.

    Body Language and Job Interviews

    During my job search, I've noticed a pattern from the articles I'm reading about interviewing tips, prep, advice, etc. Many websites have advice on body language do's and don'ts during an interview. I thought, well, this might be interesting stuff to learn. Only to find out that a lot of my own...

    Where should Autism research focus in the future? What is missing from the discussion?

    Hi everyone, I've been a part of this website for a while now - I am an Autistic woman in my late-20's, and am considering which topic to research for my PhD in Social Sciences (i.e. Sociology and Diversity Studies). I think I'd like to bring a new perspective to the field of Autism research...

    Job Interview - Anxiety about new places

    Hi all, I have my first ever job interview tomorrow. At first I was very socially anxious about it, but then I worked out which angle to go for and have been practising questions so I'm not as worried about that anymore. I'm confident that I'll be able to answer most things. Usually with...

    Topic. Got an email about an hour ago on my Hotmail account from Mojico.co.uk, they want me to attend an interview based on my CV, which they have through Totaljobs.co.uk website! I think it's a sales position through an Agency, so I may or may not get it, but heck, I have an interview based on...

    I have an interview on Tuesday at Mind Charity shop in Town

    In 2 minds about it because last year I worked in another Mind shop in Hillsborough, Sheffield for 3 months before I resigned because they kept sending me Home early because there was nothing to do, and I'm a bit concerned same thing will happen here even though it's a City Centre branch. I did...

    Job Interview Anxiety, Overload & Shutdown?

    I don't know if this is exactly spectrum related or not but I've always been awful at interviews. I've been on more than I can count but I just can't seem to grasp the interpersonal aspects of the interview process. Sometimes it's just a matter of me being really off, extremely nervous or...
