A source of practical advice for immigrant professionals

Leslie Kamenshire, a college administrator, began a few years ago to help foreign professionals in the Washington, DC area, to speed up their entry into the American workforce. She started a website, immigrantcareers.com, and published a book, Career Guide and Directory for Immigrant Professionals (Washington Metropolitan Area). She also has run some workshops. I just learned about her work and hope to post about her again soon.
She held a 7/20 workshop at which was directed to health professionals, lawyers, engineers, accountants, etc., and addresses these practical problems:
• how to get needed license or certification in Virginia, DC, Maryland
• who can help you prepare for the licensing exam
• who can evaluate your foreign credentials
• what are employment needs in the Washington area – & perhaps elsewhere
• where can you obtain help to start a small business or high tech venture
