Professionals in Nashville's immigrant and refugee population struggle for appropriate employment
"Highly educated immigrant and refugees in the Nashville area struggle to find jobs that maximize their qualifications. Some say Nashville's immigrant population shows signs of including more and more educated individuals."
"'In the last two years, I have been getting many, many clients who come here that are highly educated people,' says Mabel Arroyo, immigration attorney for Stites & Harbison. Arroyo has worked with doctors, nurses, architects and engineers from foreign countries looking for comparable employment locally."
