Review for Upwardly Global, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Upwardly Global provides a service that transform lives. We all know how nerve-wrecking the job searching process is; now imagine doing it as a recent immigrant! The immigrant professionals that UpGlo works with are all educated and successful in their own right. But they can't break through the cultural barrier here. You can see the frustration and eagerness in each job seeker - their need to get back on their feet, support their families, and most importantly, reestablish their self worth. As a volunteer at UpGlo, I get the opportunity to transform individual lives. With every resume or interview tip I give, I can personally see the impact it has on the job seeker. It is an immensely rewarding and satisfying experience.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working directly with the immigrants.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help tens of thousands of immigrant professionals and contribute significantly to the talent gap in the U.S. economy.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
