When Ms. Shabnum Budhwani said that the success rate of Skills for Change, a community organization that specializes in helping internationally trained professionals (IEDs) in fields such as teaching, accounting, engineering and medicine find appropriate jobs in their fields or related fields – is around 70 per cent, I was quite taken aback.
