Do you want your story to be heard? Casting Call for Employable Me – American Documentary

I have to thank my blogger buddy, @anonymouslyautistic, for posting this on her blog earlier this week.

JOB SEEKERS SOUGHT FOR DOCUMENTARY TELEVISION SERIES

A diverse workforce can be great for a business and EMPLOYABLE ME wants to dramatically shake up the system to prove it.

Documentary producers at Optomen USA are looking for people with neuro-diverse conditions such as Tourette’s Syndrome, Asperger’s or Autism who would like our assistance finding employment on the documentary TV series  EMPLOYABLE ME.

EMPLOYABLE ME seeks to prove that having a neurological condition or disability can be viewed as an asset rather than an obstacle in the workplace.

High profile, aspirational companies and brands are beginning to discover the benefits of recruiting from the ranks of the disabled and those whose “brains are wired differently.”

The job-seekers selected to appear on our documentary series will be encouraged to unlock their hidden talents with the help of experts and specialists so they can at long last find the job that best suits their unique skill sets and strengths.

By using science to uncover unique abilities, this series follows Britain’s most extraordinary job seekers as they seek to prove that having a neurological condition, such as Tourette’s or autism, shouldn’t make them unemployable.

At the series’ heart is a radical new emerging idea in science: that neurological conditions shouldn’t always be looked at in negative terms. By working with experts such as Director of the Autism Research Centre at Cambridge University, Professor Simon Baron-Cohen, and occupational psychologist, Nancy Doyle, the job seekers are shown how the strengths and unique skillsets that accompany neuro-developmental conditions can be harnessed in order to help land them their dream job.
