Auticon to host job far at Ohio State for those on the autism spectrum

A information technology and compliance consulting business that hires workers on the autism spectrum is having its first job fair since it set up shop in Columbus.

Auticon, based in Berlin, Germany, wants to hire 50 autistic adults in Columbus over the next two years for careers in software development, data analytics, quality assurance, salesforce development and other fields.

The event, set for 4 to 7 p.m. on Sept. 14 at the Fawcett Center on the Ohio State University campus, is an opportunity for partners and job seekers to meet Auticon company leaders and learn more about what the company has to offer.

The event is free, but registration is required.

The event is geared toward job seekers who have an autism diagnosis with at least one year of experience working in technology.
