Global Talent Bridge®
Bridging the Gap for Foreign-Educated Immigrants
When skilled, internationally-educated immigrants end up working in low-paid survival jobs, we all lose — in terms of lost economic growth and productivity, squandered skill sets, foregone tax revenue and more. This Guide is designed to show, serving this population of students doesn’t require a host of new and expensive programs. Rather, it calls on your community college to take a fresh look at how you reach out to foreign-educated immigrants and how you integrate these prospective students into the array of existing programs and resources that are offered on your campus to help all of your students succeed.

Untapped Talent: The Cost of Brain Waste among Highly Skilled Immigrants in the United States
While the United States has long been a top destination for the world's best and brightest, it has fallen short when it comes to fully tapping the skills and training of these newcomers. As a result, nearly 2 million immigrants with college degrees in the United States—one out of every four—are relegated to low-skilled jobs or are unable to find work. This skill underutilization—often referred to as brain waste—comes at a significant cost to families and the U.S. economy: College-educated immigrants employed in low-skilled work miss out on more than $39 billion in wages. And as a result, federal, state, and local governments lose out on more than $10 billion in unrealized tax receipts, according to this study, which offers the first-ever estimates of the economic costs of brain waste.
