Our mission is to assist struggling job seekers in moving along the path to employment success and ultimately, finding living wage work.
You are smart and charming. You’re motivated to succeed. You’ve moved across the world, learned a new language, and embraced a new culture to start a new life, a better life, in America.
But your first year here was really tough. You lived in a homeless shelter because you didn’t have a job and couldn’t afford a place to live. Even though you’re a college graduate, it doesn’t matter in America because you were educated in a foreign country. Plus, it’s almost impossible to get a call back for a job interview, because no one knows how to pronounce your name, and rather than call you, employers simply move on to the next candidate.
Imagine you are Baryogar (pronounced buy-yo-gar).
Baryogar’s journey at Daily Work began in 2007, when he came to the United States as a refugee from Liberia. In Liberia, Baryogar had jobs in human resources and bookkeeping. But when he arrived in America, Baryogar couldn’t find any job. In his own words, here’s one of the obstacles he encountered:
When I came here, I didn’t have any idea of American culture. In Africa, it is a sign of disrespect to look in someone’s face. I had to learn in America, it is the opposite. Without Daily Work’s help, I would not have learned those things and I would not have gotten a job.
Baryogar is following in the footsteps of hundreds of men and women affected by barriers to employment, joblessness, and poverty who have come through Daily Work’s doors eager to get the personalized help they need to transform their lives and become contributing members of the workforce.
Please consider how you can help more people like Baryogar get the assistance they need to find work and pursue their American dream.
Thanks to compassionate people like you, Baryogar found the support he needed at Daily Work. Using Daily Work’s one-to-one assistance and personal coaching, Baryogar learned about American culture, he learned how to type on the computer, he learned how to answer interview questions effectively, and then, Baryogar got a job.
