As part of Madrid For Refugees’ commitment to empowering our users, we offer specialized employment workshops to develop professional skills. Held in a series of four sessions, these workshops teach attendees how to use online job-search tools, create strong CVs and develop interview skills, while enhancing their employability and creating a plan for employment. Each workshop begins with an introduction to basic concepts, before moving into highly practical exercises. At the end of each session, participants are invited to follow up with instructors – all experienced employment experts who have worked with individuals at risk of social exclusion – to get personalized career advice. What’s more, the workshops help participants build up self-esteem, professional and personal skills, and communication abilities to increase chances for success in today’s job market.
Job support for refugees
Finding a job is one of the biggest challenges refugees face in any country. MFR’s Jobs team is dedicated to helping refugees in Madrid confront this challenge, so they are able to get back on their feet and support themselves and their families. We do this in a number of ways, ranging from improving refugees’ CVs to providing them information about training and classes to connecting them with relevant employers.
We communicate with refugees either in person or online, carefully assessing their needs to provide the best support for each individual case.
