What is English for Work Online

English for Work is a free program for students to prepare for employment in the United States and improve their English language skills. This free one-quarter program helps immigrants and refugees improve their English language skills and prepare for employment. Students develop their speaking, listening, reading, writing, and technology skills while learning to identify their strengths, research and search for jobs, write a resume, prepare for interviews, and more.  (See attached flyer.)
