Career Accelerator

When you enter our program, you are likely to have a lot of questions. Discover how to choose a major, get a part-time job, acquire your CPT / OPT visa authorization, and so much more.

Your Career Advisor

As soon as you arrive on campus, you’ll have access to a dedicated Career Advisor. Designed specifically for international students, the career accelerator is a service offering you exclusive internship preparation and world-wide search assistance. 

Featuring unique workshops and real-world experiences, several key activities are built-in to your existing coursework. You can also visit during drop-in hours or schedule an appointment with your advisor any time you have questions.


Building Blocks

Working with your career advisor, you will develop four professional building blocks: your skills, relationships, experiences, and distinct personal brand, all of which combine to give you an immediate, competitive advantage when it comes to launching your career.

You will also have a thought-partner to help you walk through any of the complicated processes you will face on your way toward your future:

  • Choosing a major
  • Finding a part-time job
  • Securing an internship
  • Pursuing a research grant
  • Receiving CPT or OPT authorization
  • Applying to graduate school
