Host Your Own Hiring Event Training

May 8 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


The Host Your Own Refugee Hiring Event Training builds on a unique and successful hiring model developed for #WelcomingEconomy for Refugees by Jumpstart Refugee TalentWorld Education Services, and Starbucks Foundation.

Sign up for our last session on May 8 from 1-2pm EDT

Refugee Hiring Events are different from most job fairs:

  • Participating employers have access to well-matched applicants, leading to cost savings associated with long recruitment cycles.
  • Applicants are pre-screened to match employer needs – 70-85% of pre-screened refugee candidates at previous hiring events received job offers or second-round interviews with employers.
  • Shortlisted candidates receive resume assistance and interview coaching.

Why Host Your Own Refugee Hiring Event?

  • Communities that create pathways for newcomers to succeed are more economically resilient.
  • Businesses that hire refugee talent are more innovative and better able to meet the needs of diverse consumers.
  • Refugees have the diverse, in-demand skills and training that employers need

What does the Host Your Own Refugee Hiring Event Training offer?
The Host Your Own Refugee Hiring Event Training is an online training that provides step-by-step lessons, informal coaching, and downloadable resources that help you plan and execute a Refugee Hiring Event in your own community.

Who Should Join the Training?
Municipalities, settlement agencies, employers, and other key stakeholders who want practical tools to help build more resilient businesses and communities.
