Working Abroad

Monday, May 8, 2017 | 10:30 a.m. - 11:45 a.m.

This ‘speed networking’ session will provide participants with the opportunity to talk with various professionals about international career paths.  In small group settings, get advice and answers to your most pressing questions, for example:

How do you land an entry-level job?  Where are the jobs located and who are the employers that hire planners?   What skills are beneficial for finding international planning jobs?  What is the U.S. Government funding outlook and how will this affect international aid and employment opportunities?  What are the differences in working for the private, public or nonprofit sector? 

Spaces will be filled on a first-come basis.
