Just for Our International Students – November Newsletter

NOVEMBER 2021 EDITION—READ ON!

We’re nearing the end of Fall 2020! There are still lots to do before December—so read on and schedule an appointment with UCS career coaches so you can stay on track!

CELEBRATE INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION WEEK WITH “EMERGING OPPORTUNITIES IN A GLOBAL RECESSION” WORKSHOP

Attend IU International Education Week’s career event “Emerging Opportunities in a Global Recession” to learn about IU’s five Global Gateway Offices that serve as in-country links between IU and international destinations/opportunities, as well as hear from IU alumni about their global career journeys during these unusual times!

JOB/INTERNSHIP SEARCH IN THE U.S. AND BEYOND

Interested in jobs and internships in the U.S. and globally? It’s free to use Passport Career and Lockin China as a Kelley student to do your own search.

REPORT YOUR INTERNSHIP/FULL-TIME/GRADUATE SCHOOL OFFER AND GET “KELLEY HIRED” GIFT!

If you have recently secured an internship or full-time offer or have made the decision to go to graduate school next year, congratulations! Please report your offer on our website. The UCS collects employment statistics on behalf of the school and this information is helpful for current and prospective students, alike. Please be assured that any information you report is strictly confidential and reported only in aggregate.

Once you have reported your offer or grad school decision, come by the UCS any Friday thru Nov. 20 (10am-4pm) to pick up your “Kelley Hired” t-shirt, cap or bistro mug. Be sure to share your success on social media with your new Kelley swag and tag: @KelleyUCS #KelleyHired

NOTE: After November, we’ll resume our #KelleyHired swag distribution in February when students return to campus.

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. Check out this resource that provides key tips and “red flags” to help you conduct a safer job search and protect your identity!
