ICAway 7-Step Career Success Roadmap for International Students

Here’s a 7-step career success roadmap that I’ve combined from the success stories of ICAway students and my own career journey in the US.

By following these methodologies, my students have successfully overcome their unique challenges, from work visas to cultural barriers, with a targeted career plan, brand, and network.

Let’s bring this 7-step career success roadmap to the international students at your university.

A Case study: Wisconsin School of Business

Webinar PreSurvey result1

Illustration: the pre-survey showcased higher numbers of “somewhat confident” and “not very confident.”

About the university

  • UW-Madison is a top-ranked research institution in the midwest with international students making up about 14.5% of the student body.

Situation

  • Through our collaboration, we hosted a 1 hour webinar on Navigating Recruitment as an International Student. The event discussed holistic career planning starting from being aware of different visa options, approaches to increasing your chances for job interviews, to following up with employers. 
  • Before the event, students who participated in the survey indicated that their level of confidence in searching for a job in the US was mostly somewhat confident and not very confident. 

Post event results

  • After the webinar event, international students at this university felt empowered and excited about networking in the American job field. Every student who took the survey after the webinar event went from not feeling confident to either “somewhat confident” or “very confident”. Each student felt that they had the ability to take action for their futures. With the information from speakers, UW-Madison staff members established a new home base on the website specifically for supporting international students.
Webinar PostSurvey result2

Illustration: At the post survey, every student rated themselves as “confident” or “somewhat confident” for the learning outcomes we established.

“Working with Kwan has exceeded my expectations for collaboration. From the beginning Kwan was clearly passionate about student success and tailored her expertise to meet our international student population needs. In addition to offering her time, she provided an additional presenter, her internal resources, and ensured the program met all learning outcomes. I feel truly thankful for the energy and passion Kwan has for Career Coaching and look forward to collaborating again in the future. If you are considering working with Kwan, I highly suggest contacting her to learn more about the possibilities.”

The webinar is very informative. As an international student, I got to know more about how to land a job in America and some legal issues about work visas. Most importantly, I get to find the right direction and take action from now on.
