International Careers Course and Workshops
Each spring semester, CIE offers International Studies 260: Introduction to International Careers, a 2-credit course open to students from across campus, which features guest speakers from a wide variety of professional fields. Students learn to research international careers, conduct informational interviews, craft an internationally-focused resume with a job goal statement, and develop a career action plan.
Throughout the year, CIE also offers career guidance through workshops including a “International Career Bootcamp” and its Careers Across the Map speaker series. You can find information on CIE’s international careers-related programming on our Facebook page.
UWM’s Career Development Center is the first place that students should visit to create a resume and gain valuable advice on the job search process. Students in the Global Management track of Global Studies also have access to Lubar School of Business Career Services.
CIE’s curated collection of international careers-related websites and other resources is available as a toolkit hosted by the UWM Libraries.
Networking with Alumni
One of the most valuable resources for current students is the Global Studies and International Studies alumni network. Students enrolled in these programs are encouraged to join the LinkedIn alumni groups for Global Studies or International Studies. CIE also tracks career outcomes for Global Studies and International Studies graduates. If you are an alum and do not see yourself on one of these lists, and would like to reconnect with us, please contact a CIE program Advisor.
