Ford Motor Company is partnering with the Autism Alliance of Michigan on a new program that plans to provide individuals who have autism with an opportunity to gain work experience in an on-the-job training program paid for by the alliance.
FordInclusiveWorks launches June 1. This will provide work roles in Ford’s product development organization.
Five brand new positions in product development were created to suit the skills and capabilities of people with autism. Ford will evaluate participants for future employment, along with the actual program in general. If there is a potential fit, the person will go into Ford’s standard recruiting process.
Ford is an equal opportunity employer, and anyone can apply for an open position at any time at http://corporate.ford.com/careers.htm.
Individuals with autism interested in being considered for future pilot program opportunities can reach out to Autism Alliance of Michigan for assistance in preparing for such experiences and workplace success.
