Employment

Employment is crucial to promoting refugee self-sufficiency and adjustment to life in the U.S. As such, employment services are available to all refugees, asylees, certified victims of human trafficking, and Cuban parolees in Indiana during their first five years of arrival or status.

Employment Services

Our employment services include:

  • Individualized mapping of employment goals and skills
  • Resume writing and interview prepping
  • Employment skills training and job coaching
  • Placement in full- or part-time employment
  • Follow up with Employers and Employees
  • Job upgrades

Exodus also introduces refugees to the U.S. workplace culture. This orientation covers topics such as how to find a job, applications and interviews, employer expectations, time management, proper hygiene, punctuality, and American verbal and non-verbal communication styles.

Employee Transit

Another integral facet of the employment program is our transportation services. Exodus operates a small fleet of vehicles that transport clients to and from work in the early stages of their employment. Transportation is offered to those clients whose work is not accessible via public transportation. Those clients who work in areas accessible by public transportation are trained on how to ride the bus and provided with bus passes when needed.

Refugees and Public Transportation Rights: Title VI is a federal law that says no one (citizens and non-citizens) can be discriminated by race, color, or national origin by any program receiving federal financial assistance. If you believe you have been the victim of a discriminatory practice due to your race, color or national origin, you may file an official Title VI complaint.
