Exploring Reskilling Opportunities for Immigrant Professionals
Thursday, June 22, 2017, 2:00-3:15 p.m. EDT
One out of every five college-educated immigrants in the U.S. is either unemployed or underemployed. Of the many barriers hindering the success of these skilled immigrants, lack of U.S. credentials and skills gaps are significant contributors to “brain waste.”

Opportunities for reskilling are essential in creating pathways for skilled immigrants to re-enter professional-level jobs. In this webinar, WES Global Talent Bridge and our partners, Upwardly Global and the Baltimore Alliance for Careers in Healthcare (BACH) will discuss reskilling initiatives currently underway geared towards the needs of skilled immigrants.

In this interactive webinar, participants will learn how to: 
  • Build on best practices serving skilled immigrants
  • Identify opportunities to develop reskilling programs
  • Leverage existing resources to serve immigrants looking to pursue further training
