Welcome to Global Neighbor NYC (www.globalneighbor.nyc), a new initiative to serve people from all the corners of the world who happen to live next door. Indeed, that’s really a fact of life here in New York: there’s a very good chance that your neighbors have a rather complicated definition of “home.”
Regardless of how many places people call home, however, we want people to feel at home and welcomed here in the city. If you don’t have any family here, we hope to become your family – and we mean it! Family always hopes to bring out the best in each other, and some of the most amazing things we can share with each other as an international community are our diverse cultures, languages, faiths – and foods!
Because we love our new neighbors, we’re also going to be launching a variety of programs to serve people who’ve settled in our city from throughout the globe. Starting on Roosevelt Island, home to immigrants, UN staffers, diplomats, and a large number of Chinese students & young professionals, we’re going to be launching services geared toward international career mentoring, personal and spiritual exploration, cross-cultural entrepreneurship, and a variety of other opportunities.
We'll also have game nights, fun travel opportunities, and tons of other cool ways to get to know each other here in the city!
We're holding an international resume & career guidance fair on Saturday, April 27! Drop by the cafeteria at Cornell Tech's Bloomberg Center and pull up to our table. Just bring a copy of your resume, cover, or any other documents and we'll do some edits together, fix grammar, or discuss career plans. You can find us at the event by calling or texting[masked].
We know that creating a resume or building one's career can be difficult in a second language, so we're here to lend a hand. That's what neighbors are all about!
