Jobs help for new immigrants

1 post in this topic

Saw an article mentioning a bunch called Upwardly Global today: https://www.upwardlyglobal.org/

it's a charity that helps skilled new immigrants "translate" their foreign degrees and experience into resumes that work for American companies and assist them in finding work.  Thought it could be useful for new/recent arrivals.

This is their blurb for job seekers:
