Mentoring is the solution which has been recommended by nearly all studies to overcome obstacles in efficient and successful integration of new immigrants and refugees. Mentors are supporting refugees in looking for work and giving advice on social matters as well as providing access to networks and thus bridging also cultural gaps.

If formerly arrived first generation refugees themselves would also be mentors, then the overall solution is much more effective; they can include their mentees in their social  networks,  including contacts  via  friends,  relatives  and  existing  employees  are deemed to be very important for job search. Newly arrived immigrants, tend to have fewer networks that are relevant to the labor market than do native-born. Thus, the heavy reliance  of  the  job-matching  process  on  informal  networks  can  limit  access  to  jobs  by (humanitarian) migrants and put them at a significant disadvantage in the labor market.
