How do I find a steady job when I have high functioning autism?
I am 27 years old. I have been unemployed for over a year. At this point in time I have noway to really prove that I have a autism spectrum except for my own personal life experiences. However I am pretty sure I do have some along the line of aspergers or some sort of social autism. I’ve always had a hard time keep eye contact, and keep conversations going . Growing up I didn’t understand social boundaries. Its hard to make and keep friends. I would hang out with the same people all the time till they go tired of me and told me to stop. I used to take everything personal and get upset like they hated me. I had to learn these sort of things on my own. As an adult I struggle to hold jobs, especially ones in customer service. I’m very introverted. So can anyone that knows they have a autism spectrum recommend a entry level job for someone like me? Its seems in most situations I am misunderstood and come off as cold when I look at people with a blank stare on my face. I’d like to be a mechanic or something like that, but for now I just need to get on my feet and move out of my dad’s house.
