Are you pursuing a career in health care in the United States?
If you were originally trained in a health care profession overseas, you might need additional training or certifications in order to practice in the U.S. However, internationally trained newcomers often find it confusing to figure out what credentials are needed once they arrive.
To help you make the best decisions for your professional success, WES Global Talent Bridge has just released two e-guides:
Each free e-guide offers step-by-step instructions for building your health care career in the U.S. They also provide a list of state-specific resources to support you during your job search.
You will find an overview of licensing and certification requirements for jobs that are considered “regulated professions” in the United States.
However, many people find it difficult or costly to earn a health care license in the United States. Others simply wish to start over, without sacrificing their previous education and training. Therefore, the e-guides also explain how you can use transferable skills to pursue alternative careers. That way, you can look at jobs that are related to your field, but do not require the same licensing.
Both of these free e-guides are part of the Career Pathways series from WES Global Talent Bridge. The series helps internationally trained immigrants find work in, or related to, their established fields once they relocate to the U.S.
What Are Career Pathways E-Guides?
Career Pathways e-guides are an all-in-one resource for skilled immigrants who want to apply their education and skills in the U.S.
Each guide focuses on a specific subject. They are created to inform skilled immigrant professionals.
In addition to Allied Health and Dentistry, previous topics include:
- Information Technology (IT)
Can E-Guides Help You Find Work in the United States?
Career Pathways e-guides will help you understand the steps involved to work in allied health or dentistry in the U.S. You will discover what it takes to obtain the correct credentials in each state. Additionally, the e-guides will direct you to the appropriate licensing bodies and organizations along the way.
You can also find advice to steer your career, whether you are just starting out or have already trained overseas as a health care professional.
Once you choose a path, the guide will help you find state-specific information about achieving your new goal. Good luck!
