Since 2012, the Celergo/Upwardly Global Partnership has delivered exceptional value both to Celergo and to the highly educated but under-employed immigrants served through Upwardly Global’s program. “We look for candidates who are multilingual, college-educated, proficient with numbers, with some customer service experience and, of course, a strong passion for international business. Our requirements are hard to find, and when we find them, it really becomes a competitive advantage for us. I’m proud to say that Celergo has hired five UpGlo job seekers into key positions,” states Honomichl.
