Spring 2018 International Students Alumni Career Chat Series - 4 sessions

International students are facing extra challenge in certain career fields and professions, based on the current job market and visa landscape. The Career Center is providing this international alumni panel series based on four selected career fields (a. Business Careers for Non-business Majors, b. Architecture, Planning & Environmental Design, c. Arts & Communication, and d. Public Policy and Nonprofit) to help you learn from alumni who "walk the walk" to share their experience and strategies in job search, their perspectives on the career path and advancement of their professions, and any advice and feedback they have for you in establishing your career in that field. This is a casual and safe environment for you to ask your specific questions, learn from the insiders from your interested field, and build up meaningful professional connections.
