How We Help
Education about the American workplace
Workplace education provides the foundation for successful refugee employment. Our employment specialists orient refugees to American workplace norms through weekly job preparation classes. They cover topics such as common workplace vocabulary, appropriate attitudes for customer-service, and work schedules.
Practical experience through workshops
New Empowerment for Refugees holds workshops to further help refugees prepare for work. Our employment counselors and volunteers work closely with refugee clients so that refugees are prepared and feel confident for work.
Connecting with local employers
Our employment specialists provide local employers with pre-screened, hardworking, loyal, and drug-free candidates. By understanding an employer’s needs, the employment specialist hand-selects qualified candidates from a diverse pool, thus saving the employer time and money. Many local employers trust World Relief Seattle to continually provide excellent candidates and ongoing support for their staffing needs.
