Virtual Open Hour at Jumpstart Refugee Talent: Ask Me Anything

May 8 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


As part of our ongoing commitment to engage with clients and other job seekers with forced displacement experience, we are thrilled to announce that we have launched a monthly ‘Ask Me Anything‘ session occurring every first Wednesday of the month from 4-5 pm EST.

This virtual event is designed to provide a platform for clients to openly discuss their career journey, seek advice, and address any challenges they may be facing. We believe in fostering a supportive community, and these sessions aim to empower clients with valuable insights and guidance in their journey to finding meaningful employment.

This month, we will be joined by Jumpstart co-founder Omar Salaymeh.
