This is a qualitative study investigating the importance of employment for young Somali men living in Australia and USA. The study, based on 30 young men participants, explores their experiences and perspectives about the role of employment during the transitional period of social integration into the receiving countries. The paper also compares young men?s experiences and perceptions of the importance of employment with their parents? experiences. Scholarly findings on refugee employment are compared to the observations discussed in this research. Some differences between the young participants and their parents have emerged, yet, most of the respondents shared similar views about the importance of employment.
