Are You Feeling Overwhelmed About Starting Over in a New
Country or Unsure of How to Advance Your Career?

If you’re like many immigrants, arriving in the USA is the start of a long journey to find your place in a new territory. If you have been in the USA for a while, it can be hard to advance into senior positions in your field. But you don’t have to walk this road alone. We’re passionate about helping you navigate career challenges no matter where in your journey you are.

If you answer “Yes!” to any of the following questions, Femigrants might be right for you…

Are you unsure how to succeed in an industry you’re already qualified for?

And being unsure how to transfer your skills to this new country prevents you from finding a job you love…

Do you feel like you are all alone in your career struggles?

And not knowing who to turn to for help is holding you back from success…

Do you feel intimidated applying for senior-level opportunities even though you have the skills and experience necessary?

And you’re frustrated that you are settling for jobs you are overqualified for instead of progressing upward…

Are you eager to become financially independent so you can support your family and give back to the community?

And you want to know you are progressing in your career so that you can give your family the life they deserve…

Is job searching and workplace culture in America a complete mystery to you?

And you don’t know where to turn to find the answers you need…

Do you want to level up your skills to expand your career opportunities?

And not knowing how to access knowledge and training is keeping you from finding career success…

If you’re looking for a supportive network to help you with your job search and interview preparation, we want to help. At Femigrants, we assist immigrants like you in navigating the process of rebuilding or advancing your career in America so you can enjoy the life you desire.

Did you know?

We’ve Still Got Work To Do

In 2021, 10% of noncitizen workers with a college degree were employed in service jobs vs. 6% of U.S. born workers.

About 1 in 3 noncitizen workers were low-income compared with 15% of the U.S.-born workers.

College-educated immigrants are more likely than U.S.-born counterparts to be employed in construction or transportation jobs.

Immigrant women fared worse on poverty measures than either immigrant men or the native-born population.

All Too Often, Qualified Immigrants are Stuck Working in Low-Paying Jobs to Make Ends Meet

There’s no doubt immigrants make an important contribution to the U.S. economy. Unfortunately, too many educated and experienced immigrants are forced to take low-paying work that is not fulfilling or using their potential.

It is common for newly arrived immigrants with graduate-level degrees to work as cleaners or food servers. According to a 2020 survey conducted by the Pew Research Center, immigrants account for more than a quarter of workers in the agriculture sector and a significant share of workers in personal services, manufacturing, and hospitality. A study from the Urban Institute found that immigrants were 11% of all U.S. residents but 20% of low-wage workers.

Whether you’re having trouble building a career or business due to a lack of recognition of foreign credentials or you simply lack the network and cultural understanding to achieve your professional goals, we can help.

Barriers and Succeed in the U.S. Job Market

Meet the Fearless Female Founder Dedicated to Your Bright Future

“Hi, I’m Aytakin, and I know first-hand what it’s like to come to the United States from another country and struggle to find a fulfilling job despite having a successful career in your home country.

When I was a new immigrant, I found myself knocking on doors in San Francisco and finding low-paying jobs at restaurants even though I had extensive experience in my industry. Without any access to career resources or professional guidance, I struggled to find my way to success. 

I don’t want any other immigrant woman to go through the same hardship that I did. That’s why I created this diverse sisterhood that fosters mutual support, trust, and collaboration. 

Every immigrant woman should know how to showcase her skill sets, articulate her capabilities, and confidently request what she deserves – be it a promotion, investment, sponsorship, or anything else that will contribute to her success. By offering career advice and resources to immigrant women, Femigrants is bridging the gap between talented women and the opportunities they deserve. Now I’m excited to provide you the platform you need to achieve your professional goals and integrate into modern society.”
