Program helps workers with autism find the perfect job

Acing interviews weren’t an issue for Randy Richardson when he was hunting for a job a few years ago.

“The real challenge,” he says, “was getting an interview.”The 31-year-old Upper West Sider, who has autism, spent considerable time looking for a job, but repeatedly came up short. That’s when he reached out to Job Path, a Midtown-based nonprofit that offers free services such as customized job searching, coaching and on-the-job support to NYC residents 18 or older with documented developmental disabilities.

Richardson’s employment specialist matched him with Midtown-based civil law firm Mayerson & Associates — the firm’s founder, Gary Mayerson, reached out to Job Path seeking a qualified candidate with strong clerical skills.
