Informational Interviews

ASAP is actively recruiting professionals to conduct 45-minute informational interviews with asylum seekers that share similar employment backgrounds. There is no obligation beyond the interview, although volunteers are encouraged to share further networking opportunities if they so choose. Professionals can sign up to assist with the interviews below:

Resume Workshops

Volunteer to work one-on-one with a highly-skilled asylum seeker to develop a one to two page resume from a CV, or help organize a resume workshop to review resumes with a group. A guide will be provided prior to volunteering. These meetings will take place at the office during office hours at a time convenient to both client and volunteer.

Project-based Opportunities

Numerous skilled professionals help us meet the everyday demands required of nonprofit management. Interested professionals are assigned to work on projects as their time and expertise allow. Past projects have included event planning, communications assistance, photography, video production, and graphic design. If you would like to offer your skills, email us at joan@asylumprojectdc.org.
