I was sooooooo impressed with all this election excitement that I considered a sudden career change to work for the civil service. I found some very interesting jobs about some topics which I research a lot, like technology and the internet and 5G….
I wrote a speculative letter and to see if I could send my CV. They said I could try getting a young persons apprenticeship to learn skills for work. Although then I said ‘I’m 35 years old, so how’s that supposed to help me if I want to gain work experience?’.
The aim of the work experience for young people of the ASD spectrum was about learning skills for work.
In my 17 years of work, these are the skills I learned. And mostly the key is …. doing the right things but not too much.
