From WELCOME BG
Welcome BG announces a lunchtime discussion on credential assessment with Senay Gebremedhin, program manager at World Education Services (WES). WES draws on nearly 45 years of expertise in credential assessment and international education systems and is able to validate and assess credentials with confidence. WES offers credential assessments that verify and assess high school and post-secondary credentials from over 150 countries
This luncheon will be virtual on May 12.
It can be difficult to explain how a degree from another country is applicable to an employer in the United States. The best and most objective way to do this is to get a credential assessment from a reputable credential assessment agency, such as WES.
Mr. Gebrehedhin will explain how WES can help employers understand foreign credentials. A credential assessment provides a US or Canadian equivalency for the candidate’s study abroad. This means that an employer, who is unfamiliar with foreign degrees and institutions, can easily understand the candidate’s background. Having a credential assessment gives the candidate and potential employers confidence that they meet the job requirements, even if they hold a foreign degree.
The lunch and learn is open to the public. Reservations are required by May 9. RSVP to Mojabeng Kamala at [email protected] to receive the zoom link of the event.
