Career Coaching/Mentoring for Newly Arrived Refugees

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Heartland Human Care Services

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 5 people are interested

One of the greatest hurdles faced by newly arrived refugees is finding meaningful employment. While Heartland Care Services's employment team assists with their job searches, some our participants are interested in additional support. To this end, we at Heartland are searching for volunteers to support our new arrivals in their searches for their first or second jobs here in America as career coaches.

Some of the ways you will help your mentee include:

  • Identify their talents and transferable skills
  • Refine their area of career focus
  • Career planning
  • Help maximize their job search
  • Provide resume assistance, job seeking tips, and interview preparation

Coaches are able to meet with their mentees in-person or virtually. We are looking for a six-month commit with the expectation that you two will meet about four hours per month at minimum.
