TBB Pilot Project Update 4, May 1st, 2017

 We are happy to share that more than 8,000 people have registered with Talent Beyond Boundaries on our online Talent Catalog. Registrations have helped TBB showcase the talents among displaced people in Jordan and Lebanon to global private sector employers in different parts of the world who are searching for these skills to fill international job opportunities.  

Talent Beyond Boundaries continues to work with several corporate partners in Australia and Canada in the Information Technology and Engineering & Construction sectors who are considering candidates from TBB’s Talent Catalog in their international recruiting. Talent Beyond Boundaries has facilitated 15 initial interviews with two multinational corporations and provided interview preparation.  In addition, 6 participants working with TBB have participated in a virtual job fair with Canadian employers. 

While we continue to work with individual candidates identified by our corporate partners, we also encourage those with engineering and IT experience and professional English or French proficiency to register in our Talent Catalog as we pursue opportunities in these sectors. In addition, we encourage our networks and those registered with us to share about our work widely so that we can continue to register additional individuals across a range of sectors and expand our work further.

Lastly, we would like to kindly remind you that if you have not completed your profile, have new details to share, or information has changed, log back into your account and update your profile. TBB may contact you by phone to work with you to improve your profile.

New Resources:

 

Coursera Online Courses

We would like to announce that Talent Beyond Boundaries has recently become a partner organization of Coursera for Refugees. Coursera is offering their entire online course catalog for free online to refugees. Coursera is an online platform that allows anyone, anywhere to take courses and earn credentials from some of the world’s leading universities and education providers. They offer over 2000 courses on many topics. For example, you may take courses in English language, Accounting, Business Finance, and more.  Courses are online and usually last 4 - 6 weeks and include recorded video lectures, auto-graded and peer-reviewed assignments, along with community discussion forums. When you complete a course, you’ll receive a sharable electronic Course Certificate.* We are very excited to be able to offer this opportunity to anyone registered in our Talent Catalog who is interested in upkeeping their skills and learning new ones.

 

*Please note that a Course Certificate is not the equivalent to a university degree certificate.

 

If you are interested in having access to Coursera’s course catalog, please send an email to info@talentbeyondboundaries.org with the subject Coursera. In the email, please include the username you used to sign up on our Talent Catalog at tbbtalent.org or your full name if you forgot your username.
