Enhancing Student-Focused Career Development Through International Student Career Week
Hoping to enhance its student-focused career development opportunities, Syracuse University is proud to offer its second-annual International Student Career Week, running Oct. 30-Nov. 4.
The week-long series of events will explore global careers and provide helpful information concerning international alumni networking, career planning, building interviewing skills, interview etiquette, and more.
For international students, shifting their potential geographic location while searching for employment opportunities may create unanticipated hurdles involving the interview process.
Daniel V. Pack ’15 serves as Syracuse University’s career exploration specialist, and he is proactively seeking to remove those potential obstacles while serving as the lead for International Student Career Week.
“I hope these events grow understanding surrounding some of the skills and experiences that can help successfully navigate the hiring process. Being comfortable in a dining setting, being prepared for interviews and knowing how to utilize LinkedIn are all skills that can help navigate employment opportunities,” Pack says.
