More than 60% of newcomers in Florida have a Bachelor’s degree from their home country; more than 95% have come to the U.S. eager to work. To assist and support their efforts to join the workforce and obtain meaningful employment, NicerFL created the Career Resource Program
The program integrates English language instruction with job readiness preparation. Through career education, learners work with a mentor who is matched to their career interest. Areas of support include an introduction to the American workforce, resume-writing support, mock interview practice, cover letter writing support, job search resources, and referrals to educational and training programs. Enrollment in the program begins with an assessment interview, to assess each learner’s needs and career skills. Those with professional credentials or specific career goals are matched with a Career coach, who provides additional guidance and support during the job search process. This comprehensive approach to career readiness empowers our learners to take full advantage of their professional potential.
