Although skilled immigrants have years of experience in their respective fields, most of them do not have experience working in the United States. Being unfamiliar with common workplace lingo and terminologies could slow down their career progress, but there are many ways to overcome this gap.
In addition to language and communication development, the process of highlighting their relevant skills and marketing themselves effectively is also important in getting hired.
Enrolling and receiving Vocational Training for a course in medical terminology could help them enter that job market.
Medical & Health Resources
Accessing free medical & mental health facilities is vital to the physical and emotional stability of the immigrant community.
Many times, refugees and immigrants have been exposed to violence, rape, even torture- but they may not know how to seek help. Furthermore, mental health issues are taboo in many cultures, creating an additional barrier for those in need.
Immigrants and Refugees Employment Assisting
As a refugee without the needed skills or education for a profession, finding a job can be a struggle. Where some refugees had degrees and occupations as engineers, doctors, and educators in their home country, coming to the United States they are unable to easily have the same status. Others find it tough being able to communicate in English while on the job.
It also is not an easy process to be able to enter the country, learn English, secure a job and try to work your way up the professional ladder as this can cause great frustration.
Immigrants need a guiding hand, and who better to give this responsibility to than those who speak their language and understand their culture Housing Resources Immigrants play an increasingly significant role in our communities — the dream of securing and maintaining adequate and affordable housing is out of reach, causing them to face systemic barriers. Often, immigrants rely upon family members and word of mouth and information for accommodations upon arrival. Triple E will form partnerships to explore not only what barriers exist, but also what resources and community engagement strategies that are needed to remedy their housing challenges and place them in communities where they can thrive and become productive.
