About this Webisode:

Buffalo Niagara continues to welcome refugees from around the world. Many of our newest neighbors come to WNY with skills and experience and are prepared to become a valuable part of your workforce.

Join the Buffalo Niagara Partnership in this webisode to learn more about how refugees are a pool of untapped talent that could help solve some of your labor challenges. Many regional employers have a long track record of successfully employing refugees and it may be good fit for you, too.

While open to all employers, this information is targeting the following industries/job categories given the skill set, education, and interests of WNY’s newest refugees:

  • Manufacturing
  • Healthcare
  • Accounting
  • Business Administration
  • IT
  • Engineering

The program features staff from the International Institute of Buffalo who work alongside the other refugee resettlement agencies in WNY to help connect the people they serve to employers.
