Opportunities for Employers
Is your business looking for skilled, dedicated workers? The Welcoming Center can help. We offer a variety of services to help you find qualified employees. Many employers don’t realize what an incredibly diverse and rich pool of talent and innovation Pennsylvania has in its many immigrant communities. We’re here to bridge that gap.
Our employment specialists work to connect immigrants of all backgrounds—from entry-level workers to highly skilled professionals—with employers who can benefit from their talents. We vet every applicant thoroughly and ensure that they’re legally authorized to work in the United States, saving you time and effort. We provide cultural education, language classes, skills training, and more to help new employees succeed in their jobs.

Immigrant Fellowship Program
On September 12, 2017, we launched the Immigrant Fellowship Program in partnership with the City of Philadelphia. The program is a 12-week paid, part-time, and project based fellowship experience with the intention of providing graduates from our International Professionals Program with the U.S. work experience they need to obtain full-time employment.
To host fellows at your company, please contact us.
