Review for Upwardly Global, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I participated in a resume and interview skills workshop with Upwardly Global hosted by Accenture in San Francisco. It was a great experience. The staff was great and very professional and the participants were really interesting. The participants were smart, many were highly trained and it was interesting to hear about their experience and help them learn to talk about their skills and education in a way that would get them a great job here in the US. The workshop lasted a couple hours and was time well spent. Upwardly Global is a great organization and does its job incredibly well. I'd recommend volunteering with them to someone who has only a little time once in a while or someone who's looking for a more consistent commitment. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to volunteers and companies looking for volunteer opportunities for their people.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand it... it needs to be everywhere. Also, would be great to get an update on how the participants did in their job search... maybe a note that XX number got jobs within a month/3 months of the workshop.
