SIV Stories: Starting Anew in the United States
Three new videos from the Cultural Orientation Resource Exchange (CORE) include excellent first hand stories from Iraqi and Afghan SIVs about their employment experience.
They specifically discuss adjusting expectations around starter jobs, realistic hourly wages, career advancement and how many members of a family might need to work.
Each one is 10-15 minutes long, so you might want to first identify where to queue just the part you want to use in your job readiness activities. They’re available in English, Arabic and Farsi.
