Employability Factor: Leveraging International Education


As we send our students abroad and invest resources in internationalizing our campus, it’s important to show our students the personal and professional development value of these efforts. It’s our duty as educators to coach students in recognizing their successes and identifying the strengths they’ve gained from their international and multicultural experiences, and empower them to market these skills in “employer speak” — a language employers understand and value. 

On Oct 8 @ 8am and 5pm Pacific Time (in the United States), the Robertson Center for Intercultural Leadership (CIL) at UC Berkeley is hosting a virtual learning webinar titled “The Employability Factor: Leveraging International Education.” In this interactive webinar, you will:

  • Learn a time-efficient framework for helping students identify and market their intercultural skills for enhanced employability outcomes;
  • Help students translate their international education experiences into “employer speak” — a language that employers know and value;
  • Bridge the gap between international education and employability;
  • Develop strategies for career coaching.
