Evangelical Christian organization dedicated to the safe placement of refugees in the U.S.
Intern Case Worker (Former Employee), Spokane, WASeptember 2, 2014
Pros: lots of hands-on experience and face to face contact with immigrants.
Cons: opportunities for participation at wr is primarily dependent on one's religious orientation.
World Relief is a faith-based organization dedicated to the safe placement of refugees. Partially subsidized by government agencies, its parameters of intervention are limited to protocols in place. A great deal of WR's workforce is volunteer and is predominately derived from churches and other Christian institutions. Not being a Christian, my service was dependent on my motivation; I found needs not being filled, devised a solution, and created a niche for myself: I accessed the immigration department by offering to organize archives and create protocols for training; I found another niche in drivers training, developing and training classroom lesson plans and practicum for immigrants. My tenure ended with the dissolution of the program I was volunteering under; a program that sought government grants for professional services.

Volunteer (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLAugust 21, 2014
They really care about refugees. I helped a lot of refugees with translation. Management are very respectful. The hardest part of the hob was the refugees families. The most enjoyable part of the job was the job itself.

Employment Case Worker (Current Employee), Fort Worth, TXOctober 28, 2013
Pros: great co-workers, enjoyable work environment, meeting practical needs of needy people
Cons: low pay
A great work environment with culturally diverse clientele. There is no typical day in the office as the ever changing needs and schedules of the clients forces you to be flexible. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping clients achieve self sufficiency.

Place where you work with multicultural co-workers and clients
Employment Specialist/Advocate (Current Employee), Jacksonville, FLOctober 3, 2013
Pros: intangible rewards, good team atmosphere
Cons: not good potential for career and salary growth.
During my typical work day I check and respond to emails, phone calls, clients' requests, work on case files, search for job opportunities, attend job fairs, visit different companies, do different orientations with clients regarding employment and workforce in the USA, teach and do presentations to the clients in an employment class, assist clients with different job applications and paperwork and hiring process, create job reports, analyze different documents, assist clients with legal issues mostly related to employment and sometimes immigration, provide orientations for clients during the hire process, explain employment benefits, prepare clients for interviews, create resumes, etc.I have learned a lot about different employment requirements,computer/internet use, effective communication, time management, planning etc. I have good professional relationships with my management and co-workers. The hardest part of the job is knowing that it does not provide much opportunities for career growth and salary potentials, and most enjoyable part is very rewarding benefits by knowing that through my work I make positive differences in peoples' life.
