Why I have next to no chance of ever getting hired.
1. I spoke out publicly on being Aspergers. This now days is a no no. Even if you do it to help others understand Aspergers. A lot of HR departments will search the web and find my name next posts talking about being Aspergers.
This makes me hire risk because of the ADA. They will see me as a lawsuit waiting to happen. Even if I despise such lawsuits.
2. I spoke out on politics publicly. Again this is a no no. Considering were I stand on politics and who is currently in the Whitehouse. Then my degree is also in an industry that is incredibly leftest. If you are libertarian, never get a entertainment based degree like me. You will never get work.
Again HR will search my name and come up with political posts with my name attached.
3. I have spoke out on student loans and the waste of college degrees. Another unpopular topic that one should never speck of if one wants work.
I have never passed one in my life. There for this tests are a barrier to me. A wall to my chances of employment. Personality is more important then skill now days. Personality also does not mean you can’t do the job ether. I can fake happy. It would be like a acting job. Pulse with some jobs, why do you have to be perky? Why is this a requirement?
In some stores were they have this personality tests. I have seen some of the most grumpy people in the world. Who can careless about their jobs. So if the personality tests are working. Why do they have the opposite in the types of people they hire?
5. Some employers will hire you based on your credit score and amount of debt. As an example. If you have a large amount of debt. You can’t get security clearance. Both in the private sector and the goverment.
With the amount of student debt I have racketed up. I have no why of getting these kinds of jobs.
6. I have no industry experience. Before the economy went into its nose dive. My industry of animation. The hire out from grads at my school was close to a 100%. After the economy fell on its face. The industry retroactively started to require three years of industry experience.
When you are fresh out of college how the hell are you expected to have 3 years of industry experience? I had a lot of employers who loved my work, but they were not willing to hire based on that sole fact I had no experience in the industry experience. “Sorry Joe we love your work but you have no experience!”
7. I am stuck loving with parents because of my lack of employment prospects. We I live. If you have a 4 year degree. You have no chance at work. It does not matter what degree it is. It could be in underwater basket weaving and you could not get hire.
Here is why. 1. You are considered a flight risk, they will think you will go for a better paid job the minute you find one. 2. Jealously on the part of the hiring mangers, “he has a degree and I don’t!” 3. The mangers fear you because of your degree. They think you are out for their job.
With all of this I have zero chance of ever getting hired by anyone, anywhere. There is no light at the end of my tunnel. It has caved in and is permanently blocked.

There are many different kinds of minds and, when they work together, they can really complement each other. Temple is a visual thinker who thinks in photo realistic pictures. This has helped her in her design work. Another type of mind is the mathematical mind. This kind of mind is really good at computer programming and engineering. The third type of mind is a verbal word thinker. Temple will discuss successful projects where the different kinds of minds worked together and a few disasters that could have been prevented by input from more than one type of mind.

All Kinds of Minds (by CalvinCollege)
As a young adult visiting her aunt’s farm, Temple Grandin found herself able to intuit what the livestock feared as they experienced the regular stresses of farm life. Was it because of her autism? Now this Colorado State University professor is widely known both for her animal welfare research and for her many books on autism. She tells how she has dedicated her life to helping animals and people understand each other. Karen Saupe hosts.
Exposed: CDC deliberately manipulated, covered up scientific data showing link between vaccines containing mercury and autism
Deniers of the link between mercury-laden vaccines and autism are going to have a hard time denying the latest findings by the Coalition for Mercury-Free Drugs (CoMeD). The nonprofit group has obtained critical documents via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request that exposes the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) role in deliberately lying about and manipulating a key Danish study that showed a clear link between vaccines containing mercury and autism.
Autism has Genetic Basis
Scientists have discovered that one of the most common genetic alterations in autism—deletion of a 27-gene cluster on chromosome 16—causes autism-like features in mouse models.

HIGHLAND PARK, Ill. (AP) — The software testers at Aspiritech are a collection of characters. Katie Levin talks nonstop. Brian Tozzo hates driving. Jamie Specht is bothered by bright lights, vacuum cleaners and the feel of carpeting against her skin. Rider Hallenstein draws cartoons of himself as a DeLorean sports car. Rick Alexander finds it unnerving to sit near other people.
This is the unusual workforce of a U.S. startup that specializes in finding software bugs by harnessing the talents of young adults with autism.
Why I started this blog and other things.
Image via Wikipedia
I started this blog as a way of helping people younger then me who are on the autistic spectrum. Help them avoid the pit falls I have experienced in life. Help people understand the nature of the autistic person and their needs and desires. Give positive advise and help.
This blog is named for the Robert A Heinlein book of the same name. It is so named because of its antagonist, Michael Smith. who was adapted by Martians when he was very young. This changed his way of looking at things, tainted it to a non-topical way of thinking.
His way of looking at the world, turned more into how a lot of people on the autistic spectrum look at things. A non-topical way of dealing life and its challenges. Allowing him to work outside the normal thinking then the of rest of the culture at large. Do you Grok?
A autistic tends to think differently then most people who are not on the spectrum. They think in specialized tunnel vision. One would be a visual thinker, like Grandin Temple, or me for instance. They might think in patterns. Say a physicist or a musician. Or they are word based and love things like creative writing.
They could have a combination of those. Then be bad in another area. For instance, be grate at art and suck at math and writing. Be a grate math person yet can’t see mental constructs of a house they might be building.
True you have people who are not on this spectrum who have these issues. What happens with Autistic, is more extreme. More intense and harsh. Yet this could lead to innovations. Were would we be with out the eccentrics like Nicholas Tesla or Albert Einstein, who showed a lot of autistic characteristics.
The spectrum is also extremely broad. You have the none-communicating types. You seen them. They rack back and forth. Very little or no none-variable communications. To the very smart autistic, like Bill Gates.
A little autism shoots peoples IQ to the stratosphere, were they are members of MENSA. More autism lowers it, to the point were they are on the level of a small child. Were they can’t function. You have issues all along this line.
Autistic work with this extreme Intensity in dedicated areas. Leaves other things out of a artistic life. Like being able to understand everyday things, like bookkeeping or emotional context of life. Personal relationships, and everything in between.
My biggest issue for example is girl friends. I desperately want one. With a deep ache in my heart. Like a bad country love song. For my entire life I have not been able to have a girl friend. You know how sad it is to be 31 and never had a girl friend when one desperately wants one.
Then you have others who are a-sexual. Who have no desire for a typical relationships. Not intrusted in the girls or boys. They don’t consider them selves gay, straight or bi. I have had friends on the spectrum who are like this.
Other issues that will manifest as I said above. Day to day house keeping. Being able to manage the household expanses. Being able to set priorities for the house and living. What is more important? Buying the iPad or paying the power bill. This happens a lot were they will buy the iPad instead. This lead it were some of them can’t live on their own.
People on the spectrum can have issues understanding the emotional, and body language and the of the people around them. Not being able to understand the context. This leads into my issues with girl friends. I would not know if a girl was interested in me unless she hit me with a 10x2 peace of wood. I am clueless. I can’t even flirt to save my life. To the point were the girls ask me if I am gay or not.
Obtaining jobs and keeping them, can be queued into the autistic persons inability to understand the context of life. For instance a none-autistic could give a vaig set of directions for a job to be done. Relaying on their emotions and body language to convey what they wanted you to do. This would confuse the heck out of me and folks like me. I end up trying to guess what they meant. Then turning in what my guess is. Then finding out it was nothing like what they wanted in the first place.
Their are a lot more issues I will cover and go more in depth in the coming posts. In my next post I will talk about me and my background. Stay tuned.
