The Borderless Career - Millennials Working Abroad

 

It’s the best time in history to be a talented and ambitious young person due to a confluence of globalism and demographic forces.  Millennials can become the first borderless talent in the history of the world, but they have to develop a “global skillset” and become culturally fluent.  How will you acquire these skills that multinational corporations want and how will you use your study abroad experience to its fullest potential to build a foundation for a career abroad?  Learn about becoming a “global careerist”, preparing to negotiate language and cultural differences necessary for searching for a job overseas.

This presentation is for students in any major who are interested in international careers and who want to learn how to position themselves to gain the attention of multinational companies and organizations. This is a workshop you absolutely should not miss!
