Our hiring process

At  auticon Canada, we strive to create an inclusive and welcoming recruitment process for neurodiverse job seekers. Our goal is to provide an atmosphere where autistic applicants can be their authentic selves and experience success. We follow an in-depth, four-step process because getting to know people well helps us match our employees to projects and work environments where they can be successful and thrive. This is the secret to our success in launching and supporting successful careers in tech.  

Step 1 - Application: Complete a short application form on our website. You will be asked to upload a resume and cover letter and will answer questions about personal and professional tech experience, educational background, autism, support requirements, etc.   

Step 2 – Informal Interview:  Applicants will have an informal interview with a member of our employment coordination team. Our team has many years of experience working in the autism community and is uniquely suited to provide a comfortable setting, where candidates can be themselves. We use this conversation to better understand applicants’ technical skills, strengths, challenges and what supports they may benefit from if they join our team. Our goal is to learn who you are, what you are passionate about, and the type of environment you need to thrive. 

Step 3 – Technical Interview: At this stage, we want to understand your technical skills. Applicants complete a technical survey, where they indicate tools and technologies they have used, as well as their level of proficiency. They then meet with our technical talent advisor, for an informal chat about their skills. A technical challenge may also be provided, which can be completed together virtually, or independently, according to candidate preference. The goal of this step is to determine proficiency in different tools and skills and match to client requirements. It is by no means a test, but rather a means of evaluating skill in different domains.   

Step 4 – Skills Assessment: The final stage of our process is an assessment conducted virtually by our employment coordination team. For more experienced candidates, the assessment is a half-day. For early stage candidates, the assessment is three days. The assessment consists of a series of non-technical tasks, delivered in a group setting. We use 36 key performance indicators relating to success in tech and employability skills that we evaluate through non-technical tasks. This assessment helps us further understand strengths and support needs so that we can optimize future work environments and projects for our employees. 

Once candidates have successfully completed the assessment, our team provides feedback, and candidates are invited to join our resource pool. We then begin the process of identifying opportunities with our business clients. Our job is to find the perfect match, which sometimes takes time.  We encourage everyone to take advantage of all the benefits of our community including additional upskilling advice, and resources as well as participate in our social and networking events.  

Auticon is more than a job – it’s a community.

    Consultant Spotlight

    Despite his skills in data analytics and development, Greyson was working in retail and having trouble finding a role that suited his skills and his career aspirations. Navigating the interview process, particularly the indirect, nuanced questions as well as reading the social cues was especially difficult. Greyson’s Employment Coordinator worked with him to prepare for the meeting with a new client and coached the hiring team to adjust their questions and interview style to ensure they would get the best out of Greyson in the meeting. Shortly after, the team onboarded Greyson onto their project team. 

    “My team at Canadian Tire has done a phenomenal job supporting me in my new position. Their emphasis on direct and frequent communication ensures that I always get a clear picture of my day-to-day, so I don’t have to worry about unspoken expectations or sudden deadlines. I am regularly informed about the impact of my work and recognized for my accomplishments, which really helps me see the value of my contributions and the difference I’m making for the company. I am excited to continue my work with them and very grateful to auticon for their continued support.” 

    Employment changes lives

    We believe affecting change in one life is the starting point for changing society. We therefore measure our social performance through the difference auticon makes to the lives of our autistic colleagues, the impact on our customer organizations, and the role we play in creating awareness of neurodiversity in society.

    Between 15-20% of the global population are neurodivergent. 2% are estimated to be autistic. Despite many autistic people being talented, qualified and keen to work, only 29% of autistic people are in full time work. Within the autistic workforce, a vast majority are under-employed, working in jobs that they are over-qualified or over-skilled for.
