Cultural Transitioning

TUnited-Globealent Connect offers cultural transitioning resources for area employers who are hiring international employees. Those who are bringing families by need assistance in navigating and adjusting to life in the U.S.  Talent Connect provides useful information and guidance along with important resources for foreign nationals. Offering these resources to foreign national employees whose families may often experience challenges when relocating to the U.S. can assist area employers with retention. With a broad spectrum of partners in our international communities in the Capital Region, our program has become an ongoing key resource for new hires and their families when trying to integrate into the local landscape.  

  • Newcomers Almanac – Talent Connect offers international newcomers a monthly newsletter that offers a unique collection of information, advice and cultural interpretation. Click here to see past issues.
  • Captial Accent – One of Talent Connect’s community partners, Capital Accent helps foreigners in speech pathology by offering services like accent modification training and business communication.
