Upwardly Global was featured in an article by USA Today centered around the immigrant job-seeker experience with AI technology. The article featured Carlos Cabrera, an Upwardly Global alum from Venezuela who has also been interviewed by NPR.

“When Carlos Cabrera and his family arrived in the U.S. from Venezuela in 2019 hoping to build a better future, life was challenging at first. Despite having a degree in chemical engineering and years of experience working for a global oil company, he couldn’t find a job to match his skills.

Cabrera ended up taking whatever jobs he could to make ends meet – working at a meat factory and Costco, driving a truck and delivering food.

Then he had two strokes of luck: a nonprofit organization popped up in a job search, and he discovered artificial intelligence.

From there, his life changed. The nonprofit, Upwardly Global, helps immigrants and refugees with internationally recognized certificates, degrees, or work experience restart their careers. They helped Cabrera purchase a laptop and provided him with career training. Then AI helped him hone his resume and cover letters.”
