Many want a life with purpose and greater meaning although fear often stops them from taking their next step, whether it is choosing a major of interest or traveling to study and immersing in a new culture or a new way of learning. The growing UVM international population has overcome fear and shown initiative, independence, and ability to be flexible. These are the skills the global community depends on and could shape the international landscapes.
International students in particular have a task of navigating the US and business culture. The coming semester there will be opportunities for all UVM students to learn job skills, hear from experts, and network with professionals in their field.
International students CAN:
- Get paid to work on campus
- Join a club and practice communication skills
- Network with the people you meet on campus and at Networking events and on LinkedIn (the new International Student and Alumni group is a place to start).
- Participate in one or all of the 3-part Skill Series—check the Career Center calendar
You’ve flown across the world, worked hard for years, learned a tremendous amount and experienced a world you never knew. The Career Center can help you navigate your next professional move. Participate and reach out to build skills to create the life you have been working toward.
