Just for Our International Students – October Newsletter

HAPPY OCTOBER!

We’re well into fall recruiting! With classes, exams, extracurricular activities, things are starting to get overwhelming! Don’t worry, 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, not necessarily WHAT you know. Don’t let career fairs be your only recruiting event. Visit companies’ virtual 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 Handshake to check out the schedule and register.

VIRTUAL INFORMATION AND NETWORKING RECEPTION

Learn more about various opportunities Eli Lilly offers and network with their employees on Tuesday, October 6, 2020, from 5:30p.m. – 7:30p.m.!

LEARN MORE ABOUT COMPANIES THROUGH
EMPLOYER PRESENTATIONS ON-DEMAND (EPODs)!

EPODs are a new feature for our students to learn more about Charles River Associations, Fischer Homes, GAP Inc., GE Appliances, Hewlett Packard, Lilly, Origami Risk, Orr Fellowship, P&G, Protiviti, Techtronic Industries, The Keystone Group, & Uline. Take advantage of EPODs whenever, wherever virtually! These are also found on Kelley Connect as a resource, and we’ll be adding more EPODs from other companies.

FAKE COMPANIES! BEWARE!

We have been receiving an increasing number of students reporting FAKE COMPANIES! Please be very cautious when applying to job postings online. NEVER send money or provide personal information to a potential employer and report possible scams to KelleyUCS@iu.edu. If you suspect something is fraudulent, DO NOT RESPOND. Make sure you do your thorough research and be cautious of suspicious postings!
