Drop us a note for any other questions!

  • Do you offer help targeting other industries?

    At this time, our program is focused on finance, which has seen a lot of demand from international newcomers community and is also an area where our team knows the best. We will plan to expand into other popular industries in the future.

  • How long can I be enrolled in the program?

    You are welcome to keep the Course component for reference for as long as you wish, and this Course component is completely free!

  • Does your program replace career services at school or community centers?

    No. The R.A.I.N. program is designed to complement the general services you can get at school or community centers. We add value by offering advice specific to finance recruiting and addressing challenges specific to international newcomers. For example, your school's career center can be wonderful in proofreading resumes and preparing you for general behavioral interviews, whereas our program will help make your resume standout to finance recruiters and avoid common pitfalls that international newcomers fall into in interviews.

  • I'm not an international newcomer. Can I still sign up?

    Absolutely! Feel free to sign up. Most of our materials are applicable to both local and international job seekers.
