Summer Career Design Workshop Series: Acclimating to the U.S. Marketplace


This workshop will help you understand U.S. recruitment cycles and marketplace culture. Make yourself visible to recruiters through LinkedIn and networking to secure internships or a job in the U.S.


About the Summer Career Design Workshop Series: 

The Columbia University Summer Session is pleased to offer a Career Design Lab series in 2023. This professional-development series is available exclusively to students enrolled in the Visiting Student Program. Students will receive career insights from CDL coaches and industry professionals in three hands-on in-person workshops. They will also have the opportunity to have professional photos taken for their LinkedIn profiles.

In the Career Design Workshop series, hosted by the Career Design Lab at the School of Professional Studies, students engage with career-development professionals and industry partners to develop and further their personal brands. During these hands-on workshops, career coaches guide students on how to acclimate themselves to the U.S. marketplace and—at a mocktail party, over food and beverages—to perfect their networking skills.. The third and culminating workshop of the Career Design series will be an industry panel with working professionals followed by networking. “Our goal is to prepare our students for the professional world,” says Kelly Ahn, Associate Dean of the Career Design Lab. “By giving them the tools they need to explore career options, conduct a job search, perfect interview techniques, we know they will be ready to pursue their dream jobs.”
