Just for Our International Students (10/2019)

Happy October!
Midterms, interviews, internships, jobs—they’re all coming along. It’s OKAY if you’re still looking for opportunities. We are here to help YOU through it all, so Keep Calm and Read on!
Network, Network, Network!
It’s more about WHO you know, that necessarily WHAT you know. Don’t let career fairs be your only recruiting event. Visit companies’ info sessions, office hours, and meet & greets, to network with as many employers and recruiters as you can to increase your chances of achieving those career opportunities! Log into Kelley Connect today and click on the “Events” tab.
