Job Placement

We offer a wide range of free employment services to low-income immigrants and refugees, including:

  • Resume and cover letter creation
  • Assistance with online job searches and filling out job applications
  • Direct job placement at local partner employers
  • Mock interviews
  • Education about workplace rights
  • Ongoing employment-related support


Our Job Placement clients range from ages 18 to 65; some clients have extensive job experience and some are youth that have just finished high school. We help all clients find jobs that help them support their basic living expenses, support their families, and save up for college tuition.

Where it is appropriate, we are exploring “crowd placement” with our partner employers, where multiple clients are placed with a single employer. This placement model provides important psychological support to immigrant clients resulting in higher retention rates, efficiencies within our placement process, and an economic way for employers to do hiring and on-boarding training.
