Aspie job angst
One thing that has annoyed me in suffering with Asperger’s is the bad luck in employment. I have a BFA in animation and media design and soon to have a MBA in marketing. For the life of me I can’t get a job to safe my life.
I once read, at least in the UK. People who are on the spectrume have a 10% are working at any given time. That is the same percentage of actors working at any given time. That is a 90% unemployment. In this economy, I am sure it is even worse now.
I hate it. It also makes it harder to get a girlfriend/future spouse. Who wants to be in a relationship with someone who can’t get work or maintain stable employment?
In the USA here. With the ADA. An employer will think twice about hiring me. Seeing me as a lawsuit preferential. A risk that is not wanted in the business world. I can’t blame them ether.
