A job well done
Employable Me is currently the best show on free to air TV. To meet the candidates for employment who have neuro diverse conditions is a privilege. At times humorous, quirky, painful, and brilliant, their stories are deeply moving and expand our knowledge of what is is to be human. Good luck to Tim, Rohan and Kayla and their families. I have a lasting image of Tim smiling, his eyes shining when he was offered a job which suited his unique skills. A man of few words, his eyes said it all. - Lynne Boyd, Brighton East
“I’m glad you can make use of my weapons grade autism”, laughs Jonathon in the ABC TV series Employable Me. He has landed a competitive paid internship, channelling his passion for accountancy. As well as a love of numbers, he has a wicked sense of humour and a way with words. And his sentiment is in line with the theme of the series, which promotes harnessing the strengths of its participants, rather than focusing on what they cannot do.
As Seven continues its TV ratings winning streak with the Commonwealth Games, the battle between other programs has tightened. The ABC show Employable Me entered OzTam’s overnight preliminary ratings top 20 with a metro audience of 400,000 metro viewers, not far behind Dave Hughes' show Hughesy with Have a Problem.
KRYSTYNA is 20, highly intelligent and has an attention to detail most of us would love to have, and she’s the star of a reality show Aussies are loving.
One of Employable Me's participants Cain Noble-Davies aspires to be a film critic. Film Ink gave him an opportunity to intern with them, which he writes about here.
