85% of college-educated autistic adults are either underemployed or unemployed.
BEND, OR, January 30, 2024 /24-7PressRelease/ — www.workability.one job board has updated its platform and functionality to offer neurodiverse, autistic and disabled job seekers a wider variety of job opportunities across the United States, and around the world. “We simply outgrew our original job board, because of our rapid growth,” said Sheila Jordan, founder and Managing Director of workability LLC.
Nearly 20% of the U.S. population lives with a disability, and this cuts across race, gender, religion, and sexual orientation. Even more startling is that 85% of college-educated autistic adults are either underemployed or unemployed.
Founded in May 2021 by the mom of two neurodiverse teen boys, the site was developed to level the playing field for job seekers living with a disability. “One of the greatest barriers in the job search process is concern around disclosing a disability,” said Jordan. “workability relieves anxiety around these barriers for both the job seekers and the employers, because disability disclosure has already taken place through the job board itself.”
The specialty job board www.workability.one is owned and operated by workability LLC, which is a social enterprise focused on advocating for and supporting employment opportunities for neurodiverse, autism and disabled job seekers worldwide.
www.workability.one is certified as a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), a Woman-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE), and an Emerging Small Business by Oregon’s Certification Office for Business Inclusion and Diversity (COBID). https://www.oregon.gov/biz/programs/COBID/Pages/default.aspx
