UCS Peer Coaches’ Tips

  • Depending on the size of the company, do not reach out to too many professionals. If you are not hearing back, it may be that your email is too generic and needs to be personalized.
  • Have you connected with a more senior students this week, international or not, to learn about their career path/goal?
  • What is your plan this Spring Break? Will you network?

Your Action Steps for this Month:

  • Network with alumni!
  • Check “Kelley:featuredjob” filter weekly! In Handshake, from the “Jobs” tab > click on “All Filters” > Scroll to the bottom to the “Labeled by your school” section > type in “Kelley:featuredjob”.
  • We updated our international friendly hiring list, since we’ve learned that more companies have hired our talent. However, you should still use this list as your starting point!
