Navigating Recruitment as an International Student

The Wisconsin School of Business in collaboration with Kwan Segal, founder of ICAway, will be hosting a 1-hour webinar on Navigating Recruitment as an International Student. This event is open to any UW-Madison student and will discuss holistic career planning starting from being aware of different visa options, approaches to increasing your chances for job interviews, to following up with employers. Guest presenters also include immigration attorney Art Serratelli and UW-Madison alum Sean Meng!

All registered attendees will be provided a follow up email with resources, a link to the video, and be entered into a drawing for one of two free consultation packages with Kwan or Art. We encourage students to pre-register for the event and to connect with Career Coach Caitlin Quillen (caitlin.quillen@wisc.edu) with any questions.
