Bridging Distance & Time Zones: Programming for International Students Before They're Here
International students experience unique challenges in their job search, which requires more intensity and effort to achieve their goals. At Texas A&M University, we are building collaborations between the Career Center, International Student Services, academic advisors, employers, and student organizations to develop specific programming to reach these students regardless of distance and time zones before they arrive on campus. With this programming, the number of students with job offers at graduation has increased. With creative scheduling, these students have the opportunity to connect with us at night and on weekends, resulting in a significant increase in participation.
