There continues to be a growing number of international students enrolling at U.S. colleges and universities. As these students prepare to graduate and consider jobs in their home countries or abroad, they need extra support navigating the job-search process.

Join us for this online training to learn more about what different campuses are doing to help students create future opportunities. We’ll discuss examples of successful programs and outreach, and participants will have a chance to share what has worked on their campus.
