Global Career Month 2020

Join Perry World House for Global Career Month, a series of events focused on potential career tracks for Penn students in the international arena, and advice on how to approach them.

While there are countless fields and paths to pursuing a career focused on global issues or working in international contexts, navigating these is not always a straightforward or easy process. Our Global Career Month aims to alleviate some of this uncertainty, providing advice and examples from Penn alumni and other professionals at every point in their career journey from a diversity of backgrounds and current work environments.

Over the course of the month, various events will focus on a wide range of opportunities—thematically and temporally—available to Penn students. This includes sessions on more immediate opportunities available to undergraduate students, such as international fellowships and internships, in partnership with Penn’s Center for Undergraduate Research and Fellowships (CURF), Penn Abroad, and more.

Please note that these events are limited to members of the Penn community.
