Neurodiversity Hiring Pilot Program (Mentra)

UConn and CSD recognize the importance of supporting neurodivergent students’ unique needs in their pursuit of internships and post-graduation employment.

We are excited to share a Neurodiversity Employment Pilot Program using a tool called Mentra which you can now use to match with job and internship opportunities at companies that seek and value your neurodiversity!

How does Mentra help you?

  • Mentra’s platform helps you develop a holistic profile of yourself that supplements your resume and better captures your strengths and accommodations needs
  • Mentra automatically matches you with employers educated in neurodiversity inclusion for positions that align with your profile, and sends them your information
  • You can also independently express interest in any roles posted on the platform
  • Mentra provides guidance and mentorship to candidates to ensure job readiness
