Empowering People

At Dell, we believe that everyone has unique strengths and skills to contribute in the workplace. We strive to create an environment that is inclusive and accessible for all. As neurodiversity is a broad category, we first set our sights on tapping autistic talent, rethinking the traditional interview process and removing barriers that may limit an individual from fully showcasing their true abilities and potential.

The Dell Autism Hiring Program was launched with the intent to provide career readiness training and possible full-time career opportunities for neurodivergent job seekers.

I have been working as a Software Quality Engineer at Dell  since September, and my work has been enjoyable and fulfilling. The people I work with every day are friendly and helpful, and I am learning new ways to contribute to my team every day. I’m really thankful for getting the opportunity to prove myself capable for this job, and I feel confident that I have an exciting future here at Dell Technologies!

Redesigning the Interview Process

The Autism Hiring Program is an opportunity to rethink the traditional interview process. Our process designed through our partnership with Neurodiversity in the Workplace, is intended to remove barriers that may limit an individual to fully showcase their true capabilities and potential.

Our Selection Process

Eligible candidates will be pre-screened by Dell staff and by our external partner, Neurodiversity In The Workplace. Qualified candidates will be invited to participate in a skill-based alternative interview process.

The interview process is designed to provide customized supports and to help each candidate demonstrate their skills to the hiring team through various projects and manager interactions.

From the moment I first met CJ, I knew he was gifted. We spent almost an hour talking about his journey in learning Python. By the end of the initial conversation, my head was spinning with ideas of how to put his incredible skill set to use on my team. When CJ first joined my team, he hit the ground running and quickly acclimated to the various development environments we have to work with.

My work with CJ has been one of the most fulfilling professional and personal experiences of my entire career. I am eternally grateful for this program, and I highly encourage anyone interested in this program to reach out for more information.

Dan, CJ's Manager
