About the Show
Employable Me is a moving documentary series featuring job seekers who are determined to show that having a physical disability or neurological condition shouldn’t make them unemployable. Each of the six one-hour episodes features two individuals from the Greater Toronto Area or Montreal who want nothing more than to find steady employment.
Every member of the Employable Me cast is either living with vision loss or a neurological condition such as Tourette Syndrome, Asperger Syndrome, Down Syndrome or ADHD. Some of them have never had a job before, some have applied for hundreds of jobs to no avail. Regardless, their end goal is the same as they embark on this life-changing journey. It isn’t always easy but each job seeker is determined to overcome their challenges, help change employers’ perceptions and find their passion.
Employable Me is produced by Thomas Howe Associates Inc. in partnership with Accessible Media Inc. (AMI) and TVO, and is licensed by all3media international.
