Host Your Own Hiring Event Training

April 24 @ 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 Talent, World Education Services, and Starbucks Foundation.

Jumpstart Refugee Talent is hosting a 1-hour introductory workshop designed to help settlement agencies, employers, and municipalities better understand the benefits of the Refugee Hiring Event Model and the steps to hosting one in your own community. The training is sponsored by the Refugee Jobs Agenda Roundtable and offered in partnership with World Education Services (WES) and Starbucks Foundation. The Refugee Hiring Event is not a traditional job/career fair. This model is a powerful means of bridging refugee talent with meaningful employment with outcomes that are 10 to 15 times greater compared to traditional job fairs. The Hiring Event model stands out because of four key features: collaboration, employer selection, pre-screening, and an action-oriented emphasis. Upon completion of this workshop, you will: • Understand the unique benefits of our distinctive Hiring Event model. • Recognize the impacts of employers, municipalities, and settlement agencies in the success of this model. • Understand the importance of collaboration and alignment towards a common goal.
