Join Rio Salado for an Autism Job Fair on Tuesday, April 10, 2018!

The event takes place from 1-4:45 p.m. at Rio Salado College Southern, 3320 S. Price Road, Tempe.

Adults on the autism spectrum (and their parent/job coach) will have the opportunity to meet with prospective employers individually, with only 1-2 employers in each room to keep the noise level low. 

This sensory-friendly event will feature workshops for employers to learn about employing adults on the autism spectrum and how to help them be successful in the workplace.

There will also be half-hour workshops for adults with autism to learn about the job fair, how to find a job, and tips on how to keep a job.

Professional attire is recommended.

The event is free, but registration is required.
