In today's global marketplace, your international background can be a huge advantage.
But, if your previous education and work experience occurred mostly outside of the United States, you can expect that the American-style job search will be dramatically different from anything you've previously experienced.
We're here to help. More than a third of Kelley's graduate population comes from outside of the United States. Our career coaches understand the differences in how companies recruit here and overseas.
We'll work one-on-one with you to perfect your personal story, help you identify aspects of your previous experiences that give you a strategic advantage, and teach you techniques for networking and interviewing—whether you seek a job within the U.S. or abroad.
And remember your powerful Kelley alumni network and your peers within the program. They can share their experiences—from networking to lessons learned since they first arrived at Kelley.
As an international student at Kelley, you’ll need to be very diligent in your job search—but, your diligence will pay off. Our international students enjoy the same overall offer rate as domestic students.
Kelley offers a wide range of resources for international students to help them manage the transition to the United States. Here are a few tips:
- Discuss your career options with your career coach before you arrive on campus.
- Practice English with our Intensive English Program.
- Improve your networking, leadership, and communication skills during the first semester's Leadership, Professional, and Career Development programming.
