Workshops for International Students

Global Professional Spotlight Series

The Global Professional Spotlight Series of workshops focuses on the transition from being an international student to a professional in the U.S. The series is designed to help students understand the journey of other international students who have been absorbed into the U.S. workforce. This series will help international students understand the global professional’s job search process. This series spotlights a career field and helps students understand the field and its opportunities from the perspective of a working professional. An invited U.S. working professional who was also an international student will be invited to share their experiences. The audience would also have the opportunity to interact with the panel and ask their questions.
