IIB Job Fair Connects Clients with Local Employers

By June 24, 2024No Comments

We recently hosted an internal job fair for our newly arrived refugee clients. Over 100 New Americans came prepared to speak with employers to learn about open positions and the interview process; the positive results were immediate!  One client was quickly hired later in the day, two others were hired soon after and an additional six have secured interviews with local employers.

The successful hiring event was organized by our Employment Services team and brought job seekers and 11 prominent employers representing industries include healthcare, social services, finance, and manufacturing. The day of networking and opportunity bridged the gap between employers looking for skilled professionals and individuals seeking rewarding career paths. Clients had the opportunity to conduct face-to-face meetings with recruiters, ask questions about the various companies, and discuss potential employment opportunities.

IIB Employment Services is committed to facilitating these types of events to support IIB clients. Based on this event’s successes, plans for future job fairs are already underway, promising even more opportunities for our community. Learn more about how we connect workers with potential employers.
