Meet the Newest Hire Autism Navigators

Hire Autism welcomed two new groups of navigators in January and February. Eight volunteers, from various personal and professional backgrounds, made up the two groups. They are:

  • Arielle Belanger
  • Ashley Perez
  • Brian Posner
  • Jai Jain
  • Jessica Olson
  • Steven Egee
  • Sylvia Musselman
  • Thomas Templer

These newest navigators are eager to get started helping autistic job seekers build their job search materials, skills, and confidence. As navigators, they will help job seekers refine their resumes, cover letters, and interview skills to assist them in finding meaningful employment opportunities.

Ebony, a recent job seeker, said this about her experience working with a navigator: “One of my main issues when I came to Hire Autism was getting support when it came to professional endeavors. My navigator made this less complicated. Throughout the time I got to know her, I ended up getting some certifications, finding a new position that was a lot less stressful than my last job, and I was able to get into grad school. I want to thank Hire Autism for existing and helping people like me when, at times, it feels like there is not much there for young autistic adults.”

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

If you have questions about the Navigator Program or other volunteer opportunities, contact the Hire Autism team at mail@hireautism.org.
