Twinist envisions a productive collaboration between employers in Minnesota and the vibrant minority/immigrant workforce that will foster integration and enable them to contribute economically, culturally and socially to the State.
At Twinist, our mission is to connect skilled authorized minority/immigrant talent with job opportunities that fit their skills and qualifications. We are passionate about connecting employers with the right talent.
Twinist was founded by and for minorities and Immigrants. Even with work authorization, experience, degrees and other levels of qualifications, most immigrants find themselves at a loss when it comes to getting job opportunities. At over 500,000, the immigrant [minority] community in Minnesota is a rich and largely untapped wealth of human resources. It is for this reason that Twinist, a platform based in Minnesota, established a service that connects minority and immigrant workers with suitable jobs and helps them integrate seamlessly into the professional American, especially Minnesota, workforce.
The struggle that minorities and immigrants face in finding a place in the American workforce inspired the foundation of Twinist. They are disadvantaged when it comes to getting the right job opportunities. This disadvantage is in part due to the lack of forums and platforms that connect skilled minority and immigrant workers with job opportunities. Twinist seeks to fill this gap by engaging both employers and minority/immigrant workers by creating a platform for them to seek talent and job opportunities respectively.
The founder of Twinist; Abdu Rahman Mahmud's journey to founding Twinist was inspired by his own experience as a fresh immigrant from Somalia and a professional non-profit program administrator looking for a place in the American job market.
