The series features two job-seekers in each episode with physical disabilities or neurological conditions who have been out of the job market for a long time, and desperately want to find employment. Our subjects are determined to prove that having a physical disability or a neurological condition like Tourette Syndrome, Asperger Syndrome, ADHD, Down Syndrome or vision loss, should not make them unemployable. Each hour-long episode features two gifted individuals as they struggle to overcome the challenges of their condition, change employers’ perceptions and land a coveted job. Many have been trying to find an entry level position for years with no success. “Employable Me” will deliver a range of bold, emotional, and personal stories with real purpose in which featured individuals will be judged in terms of what they can do, rather than prejudged in terms of what they struggle to accomplish. Heart-breaking and humourous; surprising and powerfully life-affirming, “Employable Me” is genuinely life-changing for both our unique job-hunters and the visionary companies willing to take a chance on them.
