The Employables Full Episode Guide

  • Aerial, 27, has Tourette Syndrome. Among a range of involuntary vocal outbursts and physical movements, Aerial also experiences a symptom called Echolalia which means she frequently copies any sound or expression she hears around her. Hayden, 23, was diagnosed with autism at age twelve. Hayden's dream is to find a job that highlights his strengths. With help from experts, they'll each discover their true talents in the workplace.

  • James, 35, has Tourette Syndrome, which causes a multitude of unexpected tics including saying "hat", "nipple" and a maniacal laugh. He often hides his condition by suppressing his tics but doing so is painful and exhausting. Since dropping out of college, where he studied biology, he has struggled to find any employment. Jeff, 30, has high-functioning autism and a stutter, which makes communicating his thoughts to the outside world nearly impossible, but that doesn't stop his dream of working in a creative industry. They meet with experts who give them much needed tools to redirect their job search, and guide them towards opportunities that will help them find meaningful employment.
