For Employers

We work with employers to determine their needs for skilled and culturally diverse workers, and thus connect them with qualified and motivated candidates. Portland Adult Education has close to 1,000 students who walk through our doors each day. Hence, through us, employers can reach a wide range of candidates.

On the other hand, employers play an important role in NMRC programming. Their input about their workforce needs, potential job openings, what they’re looking for in job applicants, doing mock interviews and providing job shadowing and internship opportunities, helps us make sure our program participants are qualified candidates and prepared for the jobs for which they apply.

For more information about how you can get involved with NMRC as an employer, please submit a contact request form by clicking here, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Maine's Welcome Back Center

The New Mainers Resource Center is part of the Welcome Back Initiative, a national network with a mission to build a bridge between the pool of internationally trained health workers already living in the United States and the need for linguistically and culturally competent health services in underserved communities.

We provide orientation, counseling, and support to foreign-trained health workers. We assist them in developing a career pathway plan that builds on their education, experience, and skills.
