Job hunting is difficult at the best of times, but as a newcomer to the country with a limited grasp of English and American culture, the pressure to find employment before the six months of government support runs out is tremendous.
In an effort to help smooth the way for our refugee friends, Northwest implemented a Job Readiness program that covers everything from knowing how to dress, to interacting with co-workers, to understanding their pay stubs.
We also have Job Club where we help those who are seeking employment to prepare their resumes and apply for jobs. Job Club meets on Fridays from 10:00am - 12:00pm. Additionally, we have Job Fairs at the NCC throughout the year for companies that are seeking to hire refugees specifically.
Volunteers have the opportunity to help teach the class, assist refugees with paperwork and resume prep, and practice their interview skills. Our vision for Job Readiness Training & Job Club is for refugees to view the NCC as a reliable place for help, with the intent that God will use their interactions & conversations at the NCC to ultimately put their reliance in Jesus for their eternal security.
