Problems with employement

I'm a 25 year old who was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, ADHD, dyslexia, and anxiety:

My biggest problem is that I am suppose to have a job and have already graduated from high school and 2 job assessments. I have been to several interviews here in Nevada and no one is willing to hire me at all. I'm almost at the end of my rope and don't know what to do. Does anyone have any advice for one with more issues than most?

Hi atb224155,

You might find this article on ADHD in the workplace helpful. Have you tried working with a career counselor? The article suggests finding a counselor who can help identify a job that fits with your interests and needs -- maybe one with flexible hours or an environment that suits you. This slideshow also has some daily living tips for ADHD that could help in your job search and beyond. I hope that you are able to find the right job for you soon, don't get discouraged! I'm sure other members will add their experiences and tips soon.

Best wishes,

I have a job developer, but despite that and articles. Nothing has come up at all.
