Corey lives with Asperger's and had never had a job until he joined Global Skills at 30

International Asperger’s Day is celebrated on 18 February 2020. The day aims to raise awareness about the syndrome, educate and highlight the challenges people with Asperger’s face.
Global Skills job seeker Corey Thompson was linked to our Disability Employment Service through our partnership with LikeMind. Corey has Asperger’s Syndrome and had never worked before joining Global Skills at the age of 30.
With the help of our amazing Disability Employment Services team and his employer, Corey has sustained full time work for over 2 years working for a global manufacturer in Western Sydney. 
Corey has now achieved his goal after saving money to learn to scuba dive and has been determined to bring joy to his colleagues during COVID with a range of crazy hairstyles. Congratulations Corey!
