Thank you for visiting my website.

My name’s Kwan Segal.

I grew up in Bangkok, Thailand and I’m now living in Chicago!

Before starting my company, ICAway, I have experience in the human capital consulting field where I helped Fortune 500 companies develop their Talent Strategies worldwide.

Because of my own struggles as a first-generation immigrant in the U.S.A. when moving here in 2014, I wanted to create a platform where I can transfer my experience and help my students reach their goals faster and more efficiently. 

My intention to create ICAway is simply to help international students and immigrants who feel lost, overcome their barriers and be able to position themselves as top talents in the U.S. job market.

ICAway’s mission is to empower students for global employability and serve International Educator and Career Services as a trusted advisor.

ICAway does not want to replace the career services that colleges and universities provide to the students. We are here in order to complement what you’re doing in order to achieve our common goals: to help international students successfully launch the career of their dreams in the U.S.A.

I’d love to connect with you on LinkedIn

“Finding a job as a non-STEM international student is extremely challenging. But with Coach Kwan's guidance and advice on personal branding and professional networking, I successfully broke into tech with a non-traditional background and landed my dream job right before graduation. Kwan is not just a coach that would push you out of your comfort zone, but an amazing mentor and dear friend. Invest in yourself and don't miss out on this great opportunity for the bright future that you have been dreaming of!”

“Job searching when you're an international student in the US is challenging not only in legal ways, but also in cultural ways. ICAway's coach Kwan taught me how to own my cultural differences and use it to my advantage during my job search. It truly helps to be coached by someone who went through the same challenges as you - and that's Coach Kwan! Not to mention, people here truly care for you, and they are there for you whenever you need them. And the thing that matters the most - yes, I found a job!!”
