What work field would be best with someone who has autism and doesn't know what to do.
I have autism and wanted to to be a Vet or a nurse, but I thought about it and realized they might not be the best things to work with. I enjoy working with animal, not people. I like making art or designing things. I also enjoy writing. If ya'll have any suggestions that would be great. #media #art
There are many other fields where you can design things remotely in your own environment. The key is to become highly skilled in your career such that you can be trusted to work independently without heavy supervision. The initial path to get there might require some uncomfortable interactions with other co-workers and supervisors while you gain those skills during the early years of your career. Many careers allow you to work independently but may require adequate social interactions in order to market yourself so that you can have enough work coming in to be profitable. An example would be an independent architect where you need to work closely with the client. An architect, however, often hires consultants such an structural engineers, mechanical engineers and interior designers, and these consultants usually interact directly with the architect. Also, as mentioned in the post above, you could consider being a drafter, where you could assist either the architect or consultant - sometimes in the office and others done remotely.
However, if you are interested in Art, you can consider to be an painter or different kinds of designer, e.g. interior designer, product designer, etc. For writing, you can consider to be a author. You can also consider working as a Vet or in a zoo indeed.
You can try to do more research online to find out how the daily life of these occupations and explore any part time / intern opportunities in these fields
Hope this helps!
