Community Powers

International students face a competitive landscape and need to work harder to find experience in a different culture due to limited job visas, governmental hoops, cultural and language barriers, and unfamiliarity with the job search process, such as networking in a business or social setting. International students bring great value to their institution and workplace by contributing to the economy, driving research, diversifying campus life, and facilitating global understanding. The Career Center cares about your career aspirations and we provide tailored services and resources to help you along your career journey at Cal. Engage with us early! Meet with a career counselor to take advantage of all the resources the Career Center offers.
