Major/Career Planning and Development
Funded Through

The consultant works across all Twin Cities undergraduate colleges to promote international student career success. In the first two years, the three foci have been: 1. Staff training to more fully understand international student career needs, and to build staff competence and expertise.  2. Student programming through large and small events campus-wide to build student competence in mastering the U.S. job search context.  3. Training for employers on how and why to hire international students. In the next year, the scope of the work will include developing supports for major national populations on home job searches, and specific research on what drives international students’ satisfaction with career services.
