“As an autistic guy, people never thought I would be functional. But now I’m working at the very same hospital (OHSU) I was born at; proving them all wrong day by day. If anything, my autism makes me superhuman. Thanks to Trellis, I can do anything.”

Career Search

Discover the right job for you

If you’re not sure where to start, we suggest career exploration. With the support of your Employment Specialist, you’ll work through the process of learning about different job opportunities and career paths to identify the ones that align with your interests, skills, values, and goals.

It is a process of self-discovery that involves researching different occupations, learning about the job requirements, and exploring the work environment to determine whether a particular career path is a good fit.

Exploration can involve many activities, such as talking to people in different fields, attending career fairs and networking events, shadowing professionals, conducting informational interviews, and researching career-related information online.

Your Employment Specialist will guide you to make informed decisions about your future, help you to set realistic career goals, and develop a plan for achieving them. This valuable tool is for individuals who are considering a career change or who are looking to transition into a new field.
