Hiring Young People on the Autism Spectrum

Freddie Mac Hires Young People with Autism

Freddie Mac's program to hire young people with autism, starting as interns, was recently highlighted on NBC4 and NPR's Marketplace.

Jerry Weiss, Freddie Mac EVP and Chief Administrative Officer, spoke to NBC4 about the program's benefits for young people on the spectrum, their families and Freddie Mac. Aaron Cohen, IT data analytics associate and our first full-time hire from this effort, discussed the value young people with autism bring to the workplace.

NPR featured Cohen and Freddie Mac’s program as part of a story on autism in the workplace at Microsoft.
