International Careers Course and Workshops
Each spring semester, we offer 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, we also offer career information through career fairs and events including a Careers Across the Map speaker series.
UWM’s Career Planning and Resource 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 the Lubar School of Business Career Services.
The Center for International Education’s curated collection of international careers-related websites and other resources is available as a toolkit hosted by the UWM Libraries.
Going Global offers various guides and search tools for global careers.
Coming Soon! Global Studies and International Studies students will have exclusive access to amazing career development resources through MyWorldAbroad.

Networking with Alumni
One of the most valuable resources for current students is the Global Studies alumni network. Students enrolled in this program are encouraged to join the LinkedIn alumni group for Global Studies. We also track career outcomes for Global 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 us.
The Monday Minute
Each week we post a weekly newsletter for current Global and International Studies students. This newsletter includes international job and internship postings and opportunities.
