A new digital platform designed to link Syrian refugees with potential employers worldwide was launched, according to the Danish Refugee Council (DRC), helping refugees overcome barriers such as language and lack of connections in local job markets.
The platforms allow employers worldwide to advertise jobs to target Syrian refugees who can register with the platform with their resumes, and cover letter. The platforms users can also apply to jobs worldwide and compete in the recruitment process.
