Job Opportunities for Students with Disabilities
Are you a student looking for a Co-op work term, summer job, or post-grad employment identifying as someone on the autism spectrum or with another neurodivergence*? If so, read on!
Specialisterne is working with the University of Guelph and employers to provide productive work experiences for students on the spectrum or others identifying as neurodivergent. Through a different hiring and interview process they offer students a new avenue to employment.
Specialisterne is currently interested in connecting with University of Guelph students looking for rewarding Co-op or work experiences. The first step for interested students is to register for an upcoming Specialisterne led Employment Discovery Workshop.
The workshop presents an opportunity to:
- Work on a fun project on UofG’s campus
- Learn about your strengths
- Learn about the employment market and its regulations
- Become eligible for jobs only offered through this program
The spots are limited, so we recommend that you register as soon as you can by visiting www.specialisterne.ca/bridge. Currently, sessions have been booked for January 22, 2019 and February 8, 2019.
We recommend that you contact your Co-op Coordinator to let them know that you are interested in this opportunity.
Please note: Participating in this program does mean guaranteed employment. There is no cost for students to participate in this program.
If you have questions or would like to discuss this opportunity further, please contact Julia Leary, Career Advisor, Accessibility at firstname.lastname@example.org or 519-824-4120 x53658.
