Global Career Week

Join Perry World House for Global Career Week, our annual event series focused on potential career tracks for Penn students in the international arena, and advice on how to approach them.

There are many different paths to pursuing a career focused on global issues, and navigating these is not always straightforward or easy. Our annual Global Career Week features advice and insights from Penn alumni and other professionals at every point in their career journeys, in areas ranging from national security to human rights.

Please note that these events are taking part in-person and are limited to members of the Penn community (students, faculty, and staff).
