Australian Father Asked People On Social Media To Help Find a Job For His Son With Asperger's And It Was a Success

by Irene

It's a tough gig for anyone to look for a job, but add having 'high functioning Asperger's' to that list and many places turn away.

'It had been a real struggle, he'd been rejected from heaps of jobs for no reason. I just had to think outside the box,' Scott Eager said to Yahoo News when interviewed.

Scott went on Facebook, and made a post to his local community group, asking for their assistance.

'He is currently studying baking at Tafe as he loves cooking, but just really wants to work.' the post said.

Not long after the post was up, Gymea's Caruso's Italian Restaurant offered Josh a trial, right at the front of their shop.
