Everyone should already be aware of Upwardly Global programs and resources. UpGlo exists to help highly skilled professional refugees and other immigrants achieve career success and contribute their motivation, training and expertise to U.S. economic growth.
Here are three ways to make sure you are making full use of UpGlo resources to better serve refugee professionals.
1. Register to attend an UpGlo webinar. Include your clients, too!
Attend a one hour UpGlo webinar on July 28, offered especially for the refugee employment network. You’ll learn about eligibility criteria and program services available nationally. There will be plenty of time for questions, too.
Your highly skilled refugee clients would benefit from attending themselves. The information is substantive and accessible for high-intermediate levels of English language proficiency.
2. Help medical professionals explore career options in their fields.
Learn more about another excellent FREE web-based resource presenting alternative career pathways for doctors, nurses, pharmacists and dentists in a previous Higher blog post.
3. Hear how UpGlo programs have made a difference for immigrants and mentors
Watch the Youtube video in this post, which shares the impact of UpGlo’s model in the voices of immigrant professionals and volunteer career mentors who have participated and benefitted.
If you’re trying to establish an employer partnership or employment mentor program with a hospital or care facility, sharing this video would strengthen your pitch!
