Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1991

Scientific Career Transitions assists highly trained Soviet emigre scientists and engineers to find work in their new country by teaching them the behavioral tools needed to network successfully. In twice weekly group sessions, emigres learn self-reliant job search techniques and practice their communication and interviewing skills. In the program's first full year of operation, 100 of 200 scientists and engineers found work in or close to their original area of expertise with an average job search time of 5.1 months.
