Refugee Employment

Refugee Employment Services are provided to eligible individuals having resided in the USA for a period of less than five years. Pre-job placement services include work readiness training, individual employment planning and counseling, skills assessments, job search skills, application tutoring, mock interviewing, and direct referral to employers posting full and part-time permanent positions. Pre-job placement services also may include transportation, interpretation/translation. Retention and follow-up services are provided to individuals following job placement, geared towards resolving acculturation difficulties specific to the workplace.

We serve over 350 job seekers each year and 80% of those we place in employment are still employed at 90 days.
