She will provide an overview of how the global marketplace has changed the job-search today, what skills are necessary to differentiate yourself to employers, how you can build an international skill set, and the ups and downs of working abroad.  Today’s employers are increasingly global and – whether you work here or abroad – demand is on the rise for graduates with international skills. Learn how the global marketplace has changed the dynamics of searching for a good-paying job and what skills are necessary to differentiate yourself from the pack.
