Upon arrival, every refugee adult is matched with a LSSNCA Job Developer to help them secure work as quickly as possible. Job Developers meet our new neighbors to assess their skills and interests in order to match them with an appropriate first job in our country. After a placement is made, the Job Developers will remain in contact with the client for a minimum of 90 days to ensure the match is successful.
Newcomers may also participate in employment orientation workshops and vocational training, so that they may succeed in the American workforce. Pre-employment workshops address topics specific to the United States, including how to locate jobs, the application process, interview techniques, and American workplace culture. Job Developers assist clients to create resumes and cover letters.
With the strength and support of community members, LSSNCA has helped thousands of refugees build careers in a variety of professions from health care workers to commercial drivers. Clients are eligible to return for employment services for up to five years.
