Meet Dylan

Workforce Challenge

Dylan is a young adult client with high-functioning autism. With a variety of entry-level skills and volunteer experience in his work history, he returned to the Workforce Center for assistance in finding meaningful employment.

Workforce Solution

The Pikes Peak Workforce Center team helped Dylan update his Connecting Colorado Account, develop and update his resume, access local hiring events, and attend a job seeker workshop to prepare a successful interview.

Outcomes & Benefits

Today, Dylan works full time with benefits building touch-screen technology in Colorado Springs. “With your help, I’ve progressed significantly in each job I’ve had,” said Dylan. “In this interview, I highlighted my high-functioning autism -- that I have the ability to do repetitive work without being bored, and I’m very good at it. I’ve learned throughout my job search to take it one day at a time and to be patient – you will find the right job. The Workforce Center was so helpful."
