Use Local Employment Agencies to get Candidates Faster

Non-profit employment service agencies provide many workforce-readiness services for skilled immigrants, including language training and assessment, orientation, career workshops and referral services.

You can also leverage their connection to the skilled immigrant community for your recruitment and assessment needs — all free of charge.

To start out, connect with a job developer at a local employment agency that serves immigrants. It’s their job to connect skilled immigrants with employment opportunities. They are constantly seeking new employer contacts. Most of their services are free.

You can provide these employment service agencies with your employment opportunities. They will then identify any qualified, pre-screened candidates from their database of immigrant clients, saving you time and money on your recruitment and assessment.

Many of these agencies also hold job fairs, which provide another avenue to connect with skilled immigrant talent.

The Local Resources section has links to local services that can help you find agencies in your area.
