The Cross-Cultural Career Advisor Academy


Welcome to iCEP, 

Our flagship Cross-Cultural Career Advisor Academy by ICAway, where colleges and universities’ advisors and staff members gain practical methodologies and insights to enhance their support system for the international student population on campus.

Recognizing the challenges international students face in their job search, our program infuses empathy into every aspect. As career advisors, it’s essential to consistently motivate students, especially when they encounter barriers.

Why iCEP?

Our focus is on fostering cross-cultural empathy and integration, allowing advisors to identify and address the unique challenges faced by international students, thus unlocking their full potential.

We offer practical tips to empower you in facilitating transformative change management for your students. It involves guiding individuals in their journey of self-discovery and fostering self-improvement through inquiry, feedback, and various techniques. 

As we equip you with techniques to empower your students, we also prioritize empowering you as advisors, ensuring you can support your students while maintaining mindfulness of both your needs and theirs.

This signifies that all approaches discussed in this training are grounded in real-world practices rather than theoretical concepts.
