Just for Our International Students – October Newsletter

HAPPY OCTOBER!

October is another busy time with fall recruiting, especially with interviews! 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 and networking nights 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. Our LAST Employer Networking Night (ENN) for fall semester is on Tuesday, October 12, from 5p.m. – 7p.m. Don’t miss out!

RESUME BOOKS – ARE YOU IN THEM?

Just having your resume on your Handshake profile does NOT mean your resume will always be available for interested employers. You want to be included in our resume books so our Office can make these available to employers at their request. A resume book is a digital compilation of students’ resumes, by major and graduation year, and it makes it easier for our Office to promote YOU to our employers. These will help you to become more noticeable to companies so follow these steps to be included in our resume books!

Are you looking for full-time opportunities in real estate asset management/acquisitions? Blackstone has full-time opportunities available in Tokyo, Shanghai, and Hong Kong! Find these opportunities on Handshake and don’t miss the deadline!

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.

 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!

 QUESTIONS ABOUT CPT/OPT? WE HAVE ANSWERS!

Do you have a summer internship lined up here in the U.S.? International students MUST HAVE U.S. government authorization to intern/work outside the university. Are you graduating in December 2021 or May 2022? The OPT process can be extremely complex and lengthy. Attend our CPT/OPT Info Session with IU Office of International Services (OIS) advisors on Friday, October 23, 10a.m. – 11:30a.m. IN-PERSON @ our Prebys Presentation Room (on the main floor).

 HAVE QUESTIONS? WE’RE HERE! ONE-ON-ONE COACHING AND DROP-IN COACHING AVAILABLE

We know you’ll have a lot of questions during the first few weeks of classes, so we’re here for YOU! We’re here for one-on-one coaching and no-appointment-needed drop-in coaching! Make your one-on-one coaching appointments on Handshake (for in-person or virtual appointments) and for drop-ins, just stop by our Prebys Career Center lobby Monday through Friday, 10a.m. – 3p.m.
