Career Skills Program

Upwardly Global helps job seekers who are internationally trained immigrants and refugees to launch their professional careers in the United States. Our program includes:

  • An option to up- or re-skill in high demand skills; and connections to professionals in your field.

We have trained more than 18,000 job seekers to date, and supported nearly 7,500 in finding jobs in their fields. While we cannot guarantee placement, we have prepared and supported thousands of immigrants and refugees and helped them attain mid- and high-skill jobs in America — and we are excited to work with you!
