Come and join us for the 2015 Upwardly Global Volunteer Event!

TAP-SF Volunteers will work with immigrant professionals on one-on-one job interview practice and networking sessions. Representing our pillar value of “citizenship”, we are looking to improve the quality of life for Taiwanese Americans by providing aid and services to the immigrant community. Our work will help immigrants directly, create awareness of TAP’s contributions to the community, and foster relationships with other community groups.

Upwardly Global is a nonprofit organization with its mission to eliminate employment barriers for skilled immigrants and refugees and to integrate this population into the U.S. workforce. To achieve its mission Upwardly Global prepares educated and skilled immigrants, refugees, and asylees to overcome the numerous barriers to professional employment.

Its job search preparedness and training offers six months of support that includes:

  • resume revision, interview preparation, and salary negotiation
  • networking opportunities and coaching in marketing oneself
  • one-on-one advising from staff as well as a U.S. mentor
  • acculturation training for adjusting to the U.S. workplace environment
  • direct referral to and placement in professional positions at our employer partners
  • a growing network of alumni who support one another in career advancement

Upwardly Global is a fun and rewarding volunteer event with a great community feel. Come and join the TAP-SF family this New Year to give back to our community!!!
