International Career Toolkit Series

Every year our six National Resource Centers host a series of events designed to help students leverage their international expertise and foreign language skills to launch exciting and impactful careers after graduation. Previous events in the program have included workshops on how to identify personal strengths and professional goals, prepare a polished resume or CV, write a compelling cover letter or graduate school application, and impress in a face-to-face interview. The Career Toolkit Series gives students opportunities to connect with leaders and specialist in a wide variety of fields.
