The Refugee Centre will be looking for dedicated students to work within our community networks. This serves to create a job database for refugees and immigrants to apply to, as well as to help them through the application process. This will be done through one-on-one consultations and will require constant follow-ups. This will provide students the useful experience to pursue careers in human resources and social work in the future, while creating a strong network in the community.
