In this course you learn directly from me. Each section has a video explanation of the concept. I give you the information you'd normally hear in a workshop or coaching appointment. Also in this course you'll see video examples from the interview so you know what to expect. These videos include:

As an international student career coach, I've worked with hundreds of international students who found jobs in top organizations like Google, Amazon, World Economic Forum, and BCG, as well as startups and nonprofits. Now I'm putting all my knowledge and coaching advice into one big course. I'm passionate about teaching international students everything they need to know about their job search. I built this course for students like you.
