THEIR PROGRAM
ALTHOUGH COVID-19 closed classrooms around the world, graduate programs have rallied to offer tailored degrees, networking, and internships that prepare students for fulfilling jobs. Meanwhile, the demand for international affairs careers remains robust.
Schools moved job fairs online and worked with students over video calls. They also leveraged alumni who have global jobs to help students form professional networks.
For recruiting and hiring, employers hosted Facebook Live sessions and conducted events via YouTube live broadcast sessions.
Students have been entrepreneurial, taking advantage of virtual networking. Also, an unforeseen benefit of the pandemic is that students can accept positions around the world without moving.
