It's All Global Now: Guiding your Mentees in Defining an Int'l Career Path
Wednesday, March 27, 2013 from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM (EDT)
APSIA - The Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs,
in cooperation with The National Model United Nations (NMUN), presents
It's All Global Now: Guiding your Mentees in Defining an
International Affairs Career Path
Please join us for a panel discussion with APSIA career and admissions directors to examine how you can provide the best guidance to your students and mentees in developing a career path in international affairs -- particularly as the term 'international affairs' becomes increasingly difficult to define. This inter-active panel discussion will provide ideas and resources that will help you move from offering prescriptive advice to your students to guiding them in asking the right questions and discovering for themselves viable career paths. We will also examine where graduate school can fit into career development. Lunch will be provided.
