Best Practices For Employers
- Review job requirements and descriptions, recruitment/hiring practices and accreditation criteria to make sure they do not present barriers for newcomer applicants.
Take a flexible and individualized approach to assessing an applicant's qualifications and skills.
Frame job qualifications or criteria in terms of competencies and job-related knowledge and skills.
Support initiatives designed to empower newcomers inside and outside of their organizations (for example, formal mentoring arrangements, internships, networking opportunities, other types of bridging programs, language training, etc.)
