Seeking a job or wanting to recruit talented local and international applicants?



In our previous article, we tried to explain the unemployment problems of the diaspora and immigrants. We also explored what DiasporaEngager (the International Diaspora Engagement Platform) is doing to help solve those problems. Today, we will give more insights into other strategies the unemployed people and their countries can use to alleviate unemployment and put more people to work!

After someone gets a job, it is also important to keep it and perform it without much labor issues. Sometimes, diaspora members encounter discrimination problems related to age, race, gender, disability, religion, politics, … , for which they need professional assistance (e.g. legal services or counseling). DiasporaEngager connects people with legal professionals that can provide labor services.

Helping some qualified immigrants who want to return to their country of origin can help solve the unemployment problem. Unfortunately, it is difficult for the migrants or the diaspora to go back to their home countries which, usually, at their turn, are not taping into the huge potential of their own professionals living abroad!

 

Every country needs to start involving their diaspora in key sectors such as education, research, development. Those who have an education in science and technology can also use their knowledge to find and engage with opportunities in their current countries and also in their country of origin where those skills are oftentimes more needed.

 

At the same time, volunteering must to be encouraged so, that even without pay, people can utilize their strength and talents to help others. For instance, the diaspora can volunteer their potential to advance their countries which they can also represent at strategic places abroad.

The joblessness problem can be alleviated if the diaspora can also provide their skills to their home countries in consulting and partnership. The sad observation is that many countries are not investing in their diaspora and worse, they are not taking advantage of the huge consulting potential of their international professionals living abroad!  Similarly, the international pundits and their home countries must design ways so that the diaspora can be strategically used to advocate for the development of their native nation. By doing so, the unemployment rate among the native and the immigrants can be significantly reduced, while knowledge more valued.

 

Last but not least, those who are living abroad need to be honest with their relatives who are still in their home country. Sometimes, many people move abroad seeking a better life that they never find because a relative or a friend abroad has given them false advice or information about career opportunities overseas. It is dangerous for the global diaspora to keep their own people in the darkness of the reality abroad. At the same time, it is very important for the diaspora and the immigrants to help each other in a way that those who have succeeded assist the new arrivals!

101 Tips to Understand and Reduce the Unemployment of the Diaspora and Immigrants



In every nation, people are looking for jobs. Unfortunately, it takes more than getting a great degree to find a comfortable job. Generally, people move to new places to have a better career or future. Several people have had to move to a foreign country before finding their dream job! In other words, countless immigrants have succeeded in their profession abroad much more than they would have had if they have stayed in their country of origin.

 

When certain immigrants and/or the international people migrate to new countries, the challenge of finding a new career path is sometimes very difficult. This is because the international people must compete against the native professionals in the job market. When cultural barriers and linguistic trials come into play, launching and promoting the diaspora in the workplace can be very tough.

101 Tips to Understand and Reduce the Unemployment of the Diaspora and Immigrants

At times, job opportunities are available, but job seekers just don’t know how and where to find them. This is because many jobs are posted on closed networks, websites or career placement centers that are hard to reach particularly by the least informed people. Additionally, accessing recruiters can be challenging if the job applicants must pay a fee before finding the opening positions. Regrettably, few people really take advantage of the career opportunities in their surrounding areas, and consequently, people are not always able to reach their full potential.

 

This global problem is more alarming for the immigrants and refugees, even if they are well educated, legal, properly documented, well qualified, and ready to work. For instance, in a foreign country, the need and pressure to satisfy the basic daily needs cause some diaspora members to focus on temporary and easily-accessible opportunities, therefore neglecting to strategically work on long term plans that could allow them to achieve their dreams.

 

A solution is needed for this global problem. That’s where DiasporaEngager (www.DiasporaEngager.com) comes in. Indeed, amongst many other things, DiasporaEngager is an international platform that aims at helping people to have a direct and better access to career development possibilities wherever they live. This global diaspora platform also helps them to find tools to strategize and progressively work toward their career goals. DiasporaEngager allows career recruiting services to post their job vacancies so that they can be matched with appropriate and qualified job seekers. Moreover, DiasporaEngager connects job seekers to professional training centers that will help them define, improve, and succeed in their career path. 

 

Other job search and placement opportunities or services available on DiasporaEngager include: job search tips, job recommendations, CV or resume improvement, and internships, fellowships that can help someone to get a job or a promotion. On that platform, people who need mentoring can find others who can mentor them, whereas those who have skills and expertise can mentor the needy as well. For instance, the diasporas often need help to find the appropriate job while at the same time, they can assist people from their home country in resolving some professional needs.
