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.

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.”
