About the Autism Advantage Program

About the program:
Autism Advantage is operated in partnership between Expandability and BuzzHero. The six-week cohort is designed for autistic talent seeking to navigate entry into the professional workforce. Over the course of six weeks, candidates receive training to sharpen their skills within particular cohort groupings (such as data analysis, coding, quality assurance) in order to move them into a professional advantage within their field. Candidates also receive training on how to navigate neurotypical work environments, mentorship from corporate executives, classes on advanced professional elements (advance resume design, interview navigation, effective slidedeck presentation, professional networking), and coaching from autistic professionals who have navigated the workplace before them. The Autism Advantage program also connects candidates directly with potential employers. Although placement upon graduation is not guaranteed, all program participants do interview with leading companies, and the program aggressively attempts to place all participants as appropriate.
