Careers are becoming increasingly global in scope and connection. Due to rapid globalization, university students need preparation in leveraging a successful global career. BYU GlobeLink prepares students to enter into an international workplace.
GlobeLink is a Kennedy Center initiative to help students take advantage of global opportunities. GlobeLink provides guidance, resources, and international network to help students find the opportunity to work in the industry and country they desire.
How does GlobeLink work?
GlobeLink provides students with the tools necessary to create global opportunities. We expect students to take the initiative in using those resources to his or her advantage. The program also exists to help students in knowing how to successfully network and capitalize on those opportunities.
Some of the key deliverables include an international mentor network and seminars.
International Mentor Network
The international mentor network is a growing group of individuals excited to consult students who have an interest in going global. These mentors are professionals in their respective careers and provide valuable insight into their fields of work.
GlobeLink holds regularly occurring events during the semester. These events usually involve a keynote speaker who has extensive international experiences and time to network.
