International Students' Career Perspectives and Outcomes
12:00 p.m - 1:00 p.m. Room #912
Career prospects have become an increasingly valuable factor in international students' educational decision-making. To attract and enroll more international students at both undergraduate and graduate levels, it is important for higher education institutions to understand the career perspectives and employment outcomes for these students.
This free workshop will provide an exclusive first glance at the latest WES Research report on employment outcomes, which is based upon the responses of over 2,000 U.S.-educated international students and recent alumni. This report expands the scope of last year's WES Research report, Career Services for International Students: Fulfilling High Expectations, which identified the essential role that career services play in international enrollment. (The full report will be available for free download on October 10th, 2017 at www.wenr.wes.org.)
This interactive workshop will start with a presentation outlining the key research findings of the report, which will be followed by insights from institutional panelists, who will share the ways in which they are improving their international students' career prospects and employment outcomes. Afterwards, attendees will share their perspectives, challenges, and strategies through a roundtable discussion with their fellow professionals in International Admission/Enrollment Management, International Students and Scholars Services, and Career Services. Actionable recommendations, effective practices, and future steps will also be addressed.
- - Understand international students' experience with career services and their employment outcomes.
- - Exchange opinions and ideas on your institutions' challenges, demands, and needs for data and best practices regarding employment outcomes for international students.
- - Identify effective and targeted services that align with the career prospects of international students, and explore additional strategies for improving international students' career-related experiences.
