I moved to the US in 2004 and struggled with survivor jobs. Upwardly Global helped to rewrite my resume, trained my interview skills and taught to networking with professionals. Today I have an international sales position and I and proud to be formed by Upwardly Global.
They have a great approach and very organized! I have enjoyed volunteering with them and what they provide to their users is priceless...providing professionals from other countries with the skills they need to succeed here in the US. This makes a huge impact on their lives and good for our economy too!
As an immigrant myself, I totally understand how challenging it can be for new immigrants to find a job in the US. Upwardly Global provided a friendly and comfortable environment for both the volunteers and applicants to work together.
What a great company mission. As a former volunteer of this non-profit (then I moved across the country so couldn't continue as a mentor) I am so happy to see that there are people focused on helping educated immigrants find the right roles in the job market. My parents were immigrants and not all skills are seen as the same when people come to the US. It's good to see a path for those immigrants so they can support their families and build a better life here in the US.
A stellar organization serving a great and pressing need! New immigrants face so many challenges and UPGlo is a valuable partner in their struggle. I highly recommend this organization and I am proud to be a volunteer!
I've worked with Upwardly Global for more than three years and it has been very rewarding. I am amazed by how much I learn and inspired by the foreign professionals the organization serves. The organization is truly making an impact on new immigrants with professional experience, families and the economy.
I had my doubts first when I joined Upwardly. There are many nonprofits who claim they're making a difference but in reality it's more talk than walk. Upwardly is not one of them. What they do is tangible and changes lives for better everyday.
My first mentee was a procurement professional from Ukraine who found a job in 6 months with a green energy company. At the graduation event, I met others who like my mentee had changed their life and were heading for a more successful future. What I saw that day was a proof of Upwardly's impact.
Volunteering with Upwardly Global is always fascinating and rewarding. I've helped out a several of their job training and mentorship events - working with people on resumes, job interview skills, and just general questions about how to look for a new job. I've met people from all walks of life, refugees who were top of their field but are now starting over. It's always a humbling and inspiring experience chatting with members at UpGlo events. I highly recommend volunteering here!
It is always difficult to get notice when you are an immigrant professional in USA but thanks to Upwardly Global that make a difference in this world, I had the opportunity to help other professional to build their resume, I saw in them the same desire to succeed in this new country and how difficult it is when you dont have some support. I feel grateful to be part of this important organization and I will be always be ready to help others.
I was an immigrant job seeker and found Upwardly Global almost 3 years after my arrival in the USA. The immigrant worker classes, cultural knowledge and resume and job search support I got allowed me to move from a minimum paying job as a care attendant, to a communications manager in the tech industry earning 4 times the salary I was earning as an overqualified caregiver. The experience was amazing, from the friendships I made in the class, to the volunteers and mentors that served me, and the opportunities that they directly opened to me, including introducing me as a candidate to Cisco Systems, where I got my first corporate job. Thank you Upwardly Global. Continue doing the great work you do!
I was fortunate to volunteer for this organization and see the wonderful work they are doing to support skilled immigrants in their job search. The job search can be an overwhelming experience even if you're in your home country, so this support system is a great asset to remove those barriers and create a positive job search experience. I couldn't say enough great things!
Upwardly Global does an amazing job of working with immigrants and providing straight-forward, proven career support to help them get back on their career track quickly. Their volunteer program is very well-run. They communicate effectively, and what's more, they have great trainings for both volunteers and candidates. I've been very impressed with my volunteer experience there.
I volunteered with UpGlo through a company event. They came to our office, trained us, and had us work 2 on 1 with a new immigrant to build a resume. Their model is great for people who want to have direct, personal impact in not a lot of time. The whole process took ~2 hours.
The organization has a fantastic goal of helping skilled immigrants find jobs in the US. I look forward to continuing to work with them.
Upwardly Global is an amazing organization. I volunteered with Upwardly Global while living in New York City, it was great to meet the individuals who had just recently moved to the area and were benefiting from our efforts, they were smart, accomplished, and very appreciative. I hope this organization is able to continue to grow and help more and more people. Thanks. Lilly

Upwardly Global is an amazing nonprofit organization helped me landed my first job in the US. Upwardly Global not only polished my skills for interview and resume/cover letter writing, it strengthened my confidence in working in the US.
Upwardly Global made a huge difference in my life and career. When I came to the United States. I had almost 10 years of professional experience, but no experience with the job search in the U.S. With their help I was able to reposition myself in the job market within my area of expertise. I am forever thankful for their help and proud to be an alumna - and later volunteer - of such an amazing organization.
I have helped several highly skilled professionals and referred them to Upwardly Global. Thank you so much for your invaluable services to the community.
The caliber of the staff, the volunteers and the people who come are unparalleled. Here lies the intersection of talent, potential, and meaningful impact.
When I came to this country I was so confused about how and what I was supposed to do to find a job. Everything changed when I went to a training session with UpGlow. Now I feel more confident in my job search and I've seen other people helped by UpGlow succeed as well.
Upwardly Global offers an excellent opportunity for volunteers to work hands on with immigrants to the US on their interviewing skills and resume building skills. The staff prepares volunteers during a brief session prior to being partnered up with a job-seeker, so first time volunteers need not worry about wondering what kind of advice they can provide. The job-seekers are open minded and are very open to feedback from volunteers. If you are looking to make a positive impact on someone's career, I would highly recommend volunteering with Upwardly Global.
Upwardly Global has an amazingly dedicated staff who work with their clients thoughtfully and thoroughly. Their programs, services, and advocacy are needed in a time when many are leaving the workforce and many are entering the United States with more skills and talents to share. I've also volunteered with clients and every single person was motivated and ready to work, grow, and contribute to the community--the same strengths that immigrants who came long ago also exhibited.
