    • Summary

      The U.S. has been the number one destination for international students seeking higher education abroad due largely to the prospect of increased job market competitiveness. After a continual increase over the past ten years, international student enrollment rates have begun to decline and are expected to continue in this direction for the foreseeable future. There are various steps that universities can take to address and minimize this downward trend including further investment in international student career development.

      Join Katharine Marianacci, Lehigh University, to discuss the critical role that career services plays in attracting and retaining international students as well as ways to provide the support international students need to find success after graduation.

      Following this program, you will be able to:

      • Examine factors impacting the college experience specifically for international students;
      • Identify the primary challenges international students face in the U.S. job search; and
      • Address these challenges through campus partnerships, technology, strengths-based coaching, targeted events and workshops, and employer outreach.
