Mobile apps and digital platforms have fundamentally transformed nearly every aspect of our lives. Whether it’s ordering food, keeping track of our work or life goals to sending money to our loved ones, these apps and digital platforms have made lives easier, efficient and more productive.
As the brand new year begins, we have compiled a list of five must-have apps and digital platforms that we believe will help Africans in the diaspora, especially in the U.S. make the most of the year.
It is one thing migrating to the U.S. and another getting a job to sustain your livelihood in a new country. Upwardly Global helps work-authorized Africans in the diaspora, and Special Immigrant Visa holders (SIVs) restart their professional careers in the U.S. Their online Job Search Program helps users adapt their skills, education, and previous careers into the American workforce, whilst demonstrating the value of their experience to potential employers.
The majority of people who move away from their home country, look for jobs to support their family abroad assisting with key necessities like food, education, medical and housing costs.
If you are looking for a platform to assist with your job search, Upwardly Global will provide the support you need.
Another goal for many Africans in the diaspora after settling in the U.S. is to start their journey towards securing their U.S. citizenship. The ‘USCIS Citizenship Test Prep’ App helps Africans in the diaspora who are studying for their naturalization civics exams to access mobile tutoring. The app provides flashcards on 100 different civic questions, covering topics like U.S. history and geography.
Available on Android and iOS, this app seeks to help new Africans in the diaspora to adequately prepare for their American citizenship test as they continue to pursue the American dream.
