Our annual CLEVER networking event matches refugees and immigrants with local professionals in desired career fields. Through networking, mock interviews and mentorship opportunities, refugees and immigrants can become equipped with the tools they need to move forward to the jobs and lives they want. This year, the CLEVER networking event looks a little different due to COVID-19. Instead of a traditional in-person event, we are launching a weeklong series of mini webinars. Each webinar will provide opportunities for participants to engage in a professional capacity with those in their desired career fields, as well as a chance to learn more about American work culture and mentality.
