Job Counseling for Career Pathways

This webinar was facilitated by Daniel Wilkinson, Program Manager for Economic Empowerment, LIRS/Switchboard, with a Q&A panel of three representatives from ORR-funded employment service providers who have recently increased emphasis on career pathways programming.

By the end of this 60-minute session, you will be able to:

  • Describe what a career pathway is and why it is important for refugees and other clients we serve;
  • Identify three things you can do (without additional funding) to strengthen the career pathways possibilities for your clients; and
  • Identify strategies and tools for managing client expectations, helping clients set career goals, and empowering clients to take ownership of their career pathways.
