Amrit and his family immigrated from India to England, and then from England to the US. He experienced the highs and lows of the immigration journey firsthand, and lived through the rough transitions and sacrifices his parents made – for their first jobs in England, lawyer dad had to file/mail documents and surgery nurse mom worked as a healthcare technician.
After realizing that even small gestures of support from the community go a long way, Amrit developed a strong passion for helping immigrants navigate through their initial transitions. He joined Upwardly Global in 2016 and has helped job seekers with interview prep, resumes writing, and general guidance on US workplace culture.
Professionally, Amrit has worked in management consulting, general management, and private equity. He obtained degrees in engineering and business from the University of Texas at Austin.
