Global Advantage: Career Prep for Globally Engaged Students

Join the units of NC State Global on Thursday, January 30 for an event that will teach you how to leverage your global experiences and cultural competence at career fairs and in the job hunt. Students will participate in their choice between two workshops – “Globalizing Your Elevator Pitch” or “Maximizing your Global Skills on your Resume/Cover Letter.” The breakout workshops will be followed by a panel discussion with alumni on how their global experiences helped them get to where they are today. The event will wrap up with a networking reception.

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. Students will get advice on the job search process from NC State alums who have been in their shoes and gain confidence through networking with NC State alums, staff, and fellow students in preparation for upcoming career fairs and future job searches.

Former international students and study abroad alums will share about what they’re doing now, what their job search process was like, and how their international experiences have been a marketable strength. Have a question you’d like to ask? You can submit it below with your registration. The night of the event we will also have notecards for you to submit additional questions.

Business casual dress is encouraged.
