Global Advantage: Career Prep for Globally Engaged Students

Join the units of NC State Global and the NC State Career Development Center on Friday, February 3, 2023 from 5:30 PM –  9:00 PM for an event that will help you identify ways to leverage your global experiences and cultural competence during the job and internship search process. 

This year’s event will feature two workshops led by staff from the Career Development Center.  The first will address LinkedIn and how to use that platform effectively.  The second workshop will focus on interview skills and include time to practice with your peers.  The workshops will be followed by an alumni panel discussion where they will share how their global experiences helped them get a job and how they use those skills in their jobs.  A networking reception will end the evening where snacks and drinks will be served.

As a result of participating in this event, students will: 

  • Recognize international experience as a competitive advantage when job searching and develop skills to articulate its benefits
  • Understand how to leverage their LinkedIn profile during the job search process 
  • Be more familiar with tips on how to give a successful interview
  • Receive advice on the job search process from NC State alums who have been in their shoes 
  • Gain confidence through networking with NC State alums, staff, and fellow students in preparation for upcoming career fairs and future job searches.

Business casual dress is encouraged but not required.
