Dont tell them you have autism at all then, pick jobs that correlate with your skills and how you work, and don't give them any reason not to hire you during the interview

Uh, have you missed the information that everyone is finding hard to get a job? That half the people graduating with Bachelors' degrees are ending up with low-skilled, low-paying jobs? And no, if you're high-functioning enough to go out and look for a job, you don't need to be telling people that you're autistic.

Don't tell them about the autism until after you are hired. In the US, contact the state vocational rehab office

There may not be simply "discriminating" you because you have autism, they may keep turning you down because you don't have what it takes to handle tasks the job has to offer. Don't disclose any information about your disability until you are hired afterwards. The prospective employee's capabilities/skills to adequately perform the job are one of the foremost things an employer would want to know, not your disability.

Try volunteering in your community. Often volunteering boosts self esteem. Perhaps by volunteering you can be hired as a part-time or full time employee. Animal Shelters always need help, and animals are non judgmental.
