"Like our Emmy-winning series 'Born This Way,' 'The Employables' is an important example of how embracing our differences can bring about positive and necessary change both in the workplace and in the lives of so many people." Each one-hour episode of "The Employables" follows two neuro-diverse job seekers as they work to overcome obstacles and find fulfilling employment that provides them with the skills to excel long term in their careers. Each participant works with an autism or Tourette Syndrome specialist to identify their strengths and determine how best to pursue their job search. Once they understand their talents, each job seeker sets out on interviews or trial runs with potential employers to find the perfect line of work. In addition to following the job seekers, the series also shines a light on the highs and lows that their friends and family have experienced as they support them in their goals. A&E will be providing information online and via social media about organizations that offer programs and resources for neuro-diverse individuals and their families.
