Immigrants with professional degrees have difficulty finding work in their fields. For some immigrants, it’s because institutions don’t recognize degrees from their countries, making it difficult to earn a license or certification to work here. For others, it’s a language barrier, while some immigrants simply can’t work through the procedural maze to get their degrees or credits approved. The free worshop sponsored by CCCIE, World Evaluation Services and Northern Virginia Community College at NOVA’s campus attracted over 200 students and local residents who turned out to hear how they can apply their education and work experiences to find jobs in the U.S.
