online-course-career-goal

Define a career goal to increase chances of getting job interviews and job offers as an international student.

International students cannot simply choose to work in any role or any field they desire. They need to be strategic.

Due to the fact that US employers will have to sponsor international students in the future, applying for jobs as a generalist or in a non-technical role will not work in their favor. Besides, as an international student, to become eligible for their OPT, they also need to choose to work in a role that is aligned with their academic degree. 

This course will help international students define their career goal that helps increase their chances of getting job interviews and eventually get hired.

  1. Students will receive techniques of how to define clear career goals and build an understanding of how Human Resources professionals analyze candidates.

Uncover the employer’s true needs for a position and customize answers during the interviews to fulfill those needs.

It can be extremely intimidating to network and be interviewed. It can be even more intimidating when you have a language and cultural barrier.

From a survey asking over 100 international students 

“Do you feel at ease and confident during a job interview in the U.S?” 

Only 10% of them said that “they feel very comfortable about it.”  

A job interview is one of the most intimidating recruitment processes for international students.

  1. Students will receive techniques to create a conversation with interviewers in order to uncover the employer’s true needs for a position.

online-course-networking

Become confident in building professional mentorship network in the US.

I launched a survey to over 100 international students across the US asking

“Do you have a mentor in the U.S.?”

10% of them said that “they don’t know what a mentor is.”   

75% of them said that “They do not have a mentor in the US.” 

and only 22% said “They have a meaningful relationship with my mentor(s).”

Finding mentors will give opportunities for students to improve essential skills and tap into a hidden job market, unfortunately, not so many international students know how to do that.

This course will help international students change the way they think about networking. Shift their mindset from thinking of networking as intimidating to something attainable and inspiring. They will also learn ways to build trust and engagement with professionals and turn them into their career advocates.

  1. Students will learn from the experience of an international student earning an internship opportunity via building meaningful connections.
  2. Students will learn techniques to overcome difficulties in building new connections in the U.S.
  3. Students will learn to perfect the art of asking and increase their chances of turning their new connections into strong ties.
  1. What is a “meaningful connection”? 
  2. What are the benefits of building meaningful connections?
