International Professionals Program


Are you a foreign-educated professional seeking professional employment? Even with a high level of English and a degree from a foreign university, it can be hard to find employment.

If you are unemployed or underemployed, live in Philadelphia, and have work-authorization, join our program designed to build the skills you need to secure professional employment in the U.S.

After 9 weeks of intensive training, you will have the skills and confidence to apply to and interview for professional jobs. For an additional 6 months, you will work closely with our team to connect to employment opportunities and we will provide career coaching along the way. Some of the subjects covered: resume writing, researching employers and applying for jobs, interviewing successfully, building a professional network, and designing an action plan for your career.

Enrollment is now open. The program starts October 14.
