Meet OAR’s Newest Navigator Cohort

Hire Autism welcomes its spring navigator cohort of eight talented volunteers. Congratulations to Debbie Lamb, Orissa Adams, Leon Carter, Lorraine Hernandez, Cherish Holder, Ganesh Sawant, Jack James, and Katie Hanson!

These new navigators will offer invaluable support in refining resumes, crafting compelling cover letters, honing interview skills, and building confidence. While they come from various personal and professional backgrounds, each is passionate about helping autistic individuals secure meaningful employment.

Mike, a previous job seeker, said this about his experience working with a navigator: “My navigator helped me with my resume, interviewing skills, choosing the right jobs to apply to, and provided resources to continue to guide me through the job search. Going through the Navigator Program has significantly increased my confidence in myself and my skills and removed much of the mystery around different aspects of job seeking. I feel well prepared for interviews and am confident my resume will stand out.”

Are you or someone you know interested in mentoring autistic job seekers? Apply for our July 2024 navigator cohort. Applications will be accepted until Thursday, July 4, 2024, at 11:59 p.m. ET.
