International Career Day

This event, part of the International Education Program’s second phase, is designed to give high school students a wide perspective on the global landscape; including international careers, what they entail and how to pursue their desired career path.

Participating high schools students hear from selected representatives and experts on topics such as:

  • international professions
  • college degrees
  • study abroad opportunities
  • the local impact of global trends
  • cultural “do’s and taboos”

All students hear about international protocol, teaching abroad, internationally focused degrees, and internships. From there, students choose to attend three out of seven break-out sessions featuring professionals in international business, media, defense, intelligence, diplomacy, and humanitarian service. In addition, several organizations have information booths at the event to provide interested students with more specific advice.
