International Studies Career Workshop

Join us for our annual Career Workshop Homecoming Saturday, October 13, 2018!  It is an opportunity to learn from the experiences of featured alumni speakers and enjoy hors d’oeuvres and conversation with majors and other alumni visiting for Homecoming.



The 2017 Career Workshop featured Ashley Choi ’11, Program Coordinator at Asian Services in Action, and Nicholas (Nick) Hilgeman ’10, former Cybersecurity Strategist at Booz Allen Hamilton and current University of Michigan M.B.A. candidate.  Among other topics, Ashley discussed how global health work can be done here in the U.S. because refugees and immigrants bring their own set of public health challenges to the country.  Nick, a former Fulbright Fellow in Egypt, emphasized that fluency in a language can make one stand out in job searches, among other insights.

The International Studies majors also benefited from the opportunity to talk to other alumni of the program who attended:  Carrie Schenkel Reasonover ’03, Brittany Williams ’05, Maks Chernyavskiy ’10, Devin Cooper ’16, Olivia Ortega ’16, and Harini Ushari ’17.

The event was co-sponsored by the International Studies Program and the International Studies Society.

We hope to see you October 13, 2018 for the next Career Workshop!
