I can't find a job that's a good fit for me. I have had issues with employment my whole life. I'm incredibly good at anything for a short period of time and then as my interest wains I get progressively worse until I'm either fired or quit out if shear disgust.

Can anyone recommend a strategy for finding employment that suits me?

Hello,

This article about ADHD in the workplace has some tips on how to find a job that is right for you, and ways to improve your odds of keeping that job. This slideshow about top concentration killers also has some information on things that may be hindering your work and solutions you can implement to avoid/fix the problem. I hope that some of these tips help!

Best wishes,
Atti
