The Employment Program helps to bridge the gap between Internationally Educated Professionals and Lethbridge employers. The program consults with stakeholders such as employers, regulatory bodies, and local employment-support organizations to collaborate on addressing the employment-related needs of Internationally Educated Professionals.
The program helps Internationally Educated Professionals gain the non-technical skills to transition smoothly to the Canadian workplace through a combination of employment counselling, preparation for licensure/certification, information sessions, professional mentorship, and work placement supports in order to achieve these goals.
The Employment Program also looks to address the needs of local employers in hiring and retaining Internationally Educated Professionals through a combination of education and workshops.
