Autistic job-seeker Cain Noble-Davies bemoans prospective employers’ reliance on job interviews:
From what I’ve been able to discern, first impressions are kind of a big thing for most people.
Well, I certainly hope employers don’t hold onto that too closely because, for pretty much every encounter with someone I’d never met previously, I become incredibly withdrawn.
I’m lucky to get any words out at all, and while I’ve always managed to bounce back on repeat encounters, job interviews don’t work that way.
Were Noble-Davies truly aware of the importance of first impressions, he’d ditch the weird under-chin fuzz.
