On March 4, from 2–3 p.m. EST, World Education Services (WES) Global Talent Bridge presents a webinar that helps teachers of English for speakers of other languages (ESOL), case managers, refugee resettlement workers, and other service providers advise their immigrant adult students or clients about career options. Registration is required.

Webinar participants will learn what happens to skilled immigrants when re-licensing or pursuing their home-country careers is not the best or desired option. As WES Global Talent Bridge states, “not every doctor can or should try to become a medical doctor again, and not every accountant wants to become a certified public accountant.”

Webinar participants will also learn how to research other career pathways for skilled immigrants and get practical examples of alternative career pathways.

WES is located in Lower Manhattan. Global Talent Bridge, a WES initiative, “is dedicated to helping skilled immigrants fully utilize their talents and education in the United States.”
