R.A.I.N. (Recruiting Assistance for International Newcomers) Career Institute is a registered charity dedicated to reducing underemployment of international students and recent immigrants in North America - aka "brain waste". Under-utilization of talent is expensive for our economies and costs tens of billions of dollars every year.
R.A.I.N. is operated by a group of volunteers who understand the unique challenges facing international newcomers - language barriers, cultural differences, lack of professional connections, and the ever-elusive concept of fit, to name a few. Through addressing these specific challenges, we help unlock the potential of international newcomers by empowering them with the right set of job-search skills that work in the North American employment context.
