10 Global Talent Bridge Global Talent Bridge is an initiative of World Education Services (WES) that is dedicated to helping skilled immigrants fully utilize their talents and education in the United States. Online resources Pathways to Success seminars Support and training for institutions and agencies

11 Barriers to Success More than 2.7 million college-educated immigrants in the U.S. are unemployed or working below their skill level You are not alone Academic credentials NOT recognized NOT familiar with U.S. job search process Limited English Source: Migration Policy Institute, Uneven Progress, 2008

12 Foreign Credential Recognition Your foreign education has value in the U.S.! Each institution/agency/employer sets its own rules regarding recognition and acceptance No government agency or single standard Some institutions do their own evaluations, but most designate external evaluation services Private evaluation services (like WES) Operate independently Charge fees $ (General) $ (Detailed)

13 Sample Credential Evaluation

14 Choosing a Service Your international education, once evaluated, can be recognized and accepted by academic institutions, licensing boards and employers. Choosing an evaluation service. What instructions does the recipient provide? Hint: Check the International Student page! Consider your future goals (education, employment, licensing) If given a choice of services, consult to identify a qualified and reliable evaluation service

15 Choose Carefully Always check with the institution, employer or board about the evaluation service(s) they recommend or will accept Caution about Google searches: 1) Just because it is on Google doesn t mean it is reliable; 2) Know the difference between organic and advertised search results These are ads (appear in box that is lightly shaded) These are organic search results

16 Evaluations for Education CREDENTIAL EVALUATION Many colleges and universities will require an evaluation from a private evaluation service like WES OR Some schools perform their own evaluations and will NOT accept an evaluation from an outside service ADMISSION The college or university uses the evaluation to decide your eligibility for admission to an academic program TRANSFER CREDIT (Possible) Institutions will also use the evaluation to decide whether to offer transfer credit. Note: Institutions set a limit on the amount of transfer credit they will accept

17 Evaluations for Professional Licensing Licensing is state regulated, with separate boards for each profession. Licensing requirements are complicated, and usually include most of the elements listed below: Credential Evaluation Certification from professional association Supplemental courses and/or English language requirements Work experience/ Internship Examinations Fingerprints, fees, citizenship, etc

18 Licensing Timeframes PROFESSION Accountant (CPA) Architect Dentist Pharmacist Physician Professional Engineer Teacher (K-12) Approximate Time/Costs More Efficient Path 10 months $1, /2 years $6,600 4 years 8 months $101,800 3 years 9 months $2,265 5 years 1 to 5 years residency $9,900 4 years 8 months $800 1 year and 4 months $650 Approximate Time/Costs Less Efficient Path 4 years $4, years $10, /2 years $122,500 7 years 8 months $8, years 1 to 5 years residency $15, years 9 months $1,700 4 years $31,000 Data Courtesy of Careers for New Americans / Upwardly Global

19 Alternatives to Licensing Even without being licensed, many professionals can utilize their skills in alternate or related fields; for example: Teachers can work in private schools, as instructors at community colleges or non-profit organizations, or as trainers in private industry. There are also teaching fellowships that allow them to license while working Accountants can work in many positions, including bookkeepers, accounting clerks, loan officers, budget analysts, etc. Healthcare professionals can consider non-regulated occupations such as medical interpretation or positions in health administration, research or community health Engineers or Architects can work in technical, advisory and management positions that can have an important impact on engineering projects

20 Evaluations for Employment Employers may ask for a credential evaluation and have a preferred service OR Employers may not be familiar with credential evaluation, so it is important that to present evaluation to potential employers When speaking to Employers Market your education Highlight the U.S. equivalency on your resume

21 Finding a Job in the U.S. It is estimated that 77% of all jobs in the U.S. are found through professional networking U.S. job search process is fast-paced and competitive, therefore, it is important that you develop an excellent professional portfolio (resume, cover letter and interview skills) You should always seek help with developing your professional portfolio Library Department of Labor Community Organization

22 Gaining U.S. Experience Volunteering or Internships allows you to find opportunities to re-enter your career field or try a new field of interest Gain experience in U.S. workplace Utilize, demonstrate and update your skills Build your network Develop references (and maybe a mentor) Strengthen your resume Improve your English Taking Courses - Even if you have strong academic credentials from overseas, U.S. study can be improve your chances of finding employment Update your skills Gain new skills Improve your English
