Career Pathways for International Students


It is the dreaded question that all students face: what do you plan to do after you graduate? The polite reaction is to vaguely throw out a concocted statement about considering your options, but on the inside, you are furiously pressing that panic button. What awaits you in the murky, unknown, probably Kraken infested waters of post grad life? Fear not, there are many ways to wrangle that Kraken, and you can learn all about them in Career Pathways.

Career Pathways is now available on Canvas for international graduate students seeking to explore their post graduation options. The course will detail resources offered by the Career Services office in the United States and how you can take advantage of these services. Career Pathways can help you develop the skills and branding you will need when you enter the professional world.


Of course, the big concern of Optional Practical Training (OPT) will be addressed. Career Pathways will help you learn more about your OPT and how you can use it to the fullest extent towards your career goals.
