A: If you believe that you don’t need to make an effort but becoming a member will give you a new job overnight, this is not a program for you. If you want to be a generalist, not a specialist, this is not a program for you.

A: We have a proven methodology and you are in the driver’s seat to implement and achieve your goals. We have seen trends that when students have followed our game plan closely and stayed in touch with Coach Kwan, they have received job or internship offers.

We’re not implying you’ll automatically have the same results. Your results may vary and depend on many factors. All the results referenced in our student success stories are individual outcomes.

A: With Coach Kwan’s HR expertise, she is able to help you discover competencies that your target employers look for in a candidate. The approach applies to any jobs/fields. Our program will teach you how to develop outstanding networking skills and a strong career brand. You will learn how to be your own career advocates and present yourself as a talent for your field.

A: If your goal is to find jobs when you’re eligible for your CPT or OPT, you should start the program as soon as you can when you get to the US. Don’t wait until you graduate.

A: The program offers both group and one-on-one coaching experience. Both complete and VIP packages offer a one-on-one assessment & game plan session.

In the complete package, you will learn from the modules and develop your Resumes, LinkedIn, etc. and submit them via the platform for Coach Kwan’s reviews and personalized feedback.

If you want to have more private 1:1 sessions and want Coach Kwan to develop career brand materials (resumes/LinkedIn) instead of learning from the modules, you may upgrade to the VIP package.

On a weekly basis, you will get an exclusive invitation to our group coaching session. In this session, you can ask Coach Kwan questions LIVE, meet with our guest mentors and network with other members who are there to support each other!   

A: ICAway Talent Platform is not just another online course. It is your personal coach, a community of career ambitious international job seekers, and a support system (work visas, mentors, job referrals).

A: You may have 1:1 sessions a hundred times with someone but those meetings will never guarantee your success. Why? It’s because not every school counselor knows how to help you in the right way.

  • They may not have experience getting into corporate America as an international.
  • They may not have HR knowledge.
  • They may not have extensive experience helping international students and immigrants who have triple challenges find jobs in the U.S.

Please remember that you are unique and you need the right strategy and support that goes beyond regular job seekers. The program that Coach Kwan has designed will guide you every step of the way on how to hunt for jobs as an international.

A: Yes, this program works for all job seekers who are not familiar with the US job market and do not have professional connections in the US. It helps you overcome your cultural barriers, and understand the whole process of hiring in the US. Our resources will help you improve your networking skills and how you present yourself to the American job market.

A: We offer a payment plan to make the program more affordable. Even if you get a job offer before your payment plan ends, you are still responsible for your payment. This applies even if you decide to discontinue the program before the payment plan ends. 

Please note that the payment plan is only 7 month-period but the program offers you a lifetime membership.
