We host a variety of workshops that supplement a student's job search by building on skills such as:

  • Effective networking
  • Interviewing with confidence

  • Developing stories to demonstrate skills and experience
  • Conducting industry and company research
  • Communicating with alumni
  • Negotiating salary

Executives-in-Residence Program  

Our Executives-in-Residence program offers students the opportunity to meet with successful industry professionals with storied careers in their fields. These executives volunteer their time to conduct mock interviews, give strategic advice, and answer tactical job search questions.

Preparing Your Resume  

We provide a number of different templates and resume writing-tools to help students create effective, professional, and compelling job-search documents. Our team works with students individually to customize these documents for a myriad of job opportunities. 

Coursework: Launching Your Global Career  

We offer a career-based course called “Launching Your Global Career" each academic year. The goal of this course is to provide a foundation and set of professional skills that prove useful throughout your career.
