A Source of Employment Possibilities

Author: The Irish Immigration Center

The Irish Immigration Center (IIC) is committed to providing individualized support, professional services, and dynamic programs to immigrants in the Massachusetts area. It was established in 1989 in response to a growing concern about the needs and welfare of immigrants. Its services are available to Albanian newcomers and other immigrants via a network of experienced counselors and social workers.

EMPLOYMENT SERVICES
The IIC offers new and established immigrants the opportunity to pursue their job search in a friendly, supportive, and self-help environment. Its “One Stop” Center allows job-seekers access to computers and information on upcoming workshops and job fairs. In-depth professional assistance is provided by an Employment Coordinator, including resume and cover letter writing, tips on interviewing techniques, and advice on networking and informational interviewing. The In-house Jobs Board lists positions currently available. Consistent contacts with employers and employment agencies enables the Employment Coordinator to develop a wide range of employment opportunities for job seekers.

Drop-In Center
The Drop-In Center is a friendly, relaxed and comfortable space which hosts a wide array of professional services. People frequently come in just to check the job/housing notice boards (every day except Tuesday and Thursday). For additional information about employment possibilities, please contact:
