International Student/Professional Success: Networking: More than Just Small Talk

March 5

When working with American colleagues, attending conferences, or going to interviews, small talk can be a difficult, but necessary hurdle. This workshop will cover the basics of conversing; finding topics to talk about, making sure the other participants are engaged, reading body language, and how to start and end conversations successfully.

Each academic year, ITAP offers free workshops to help international graduate students develop the skills they need to be more successful. Workshops are free, but students need to register to make sure they have a seat. To receive more information about these workshops, to find out about additional undergraduate-led workshops about oral language and cultural issues or to register, join the Blackboard ITAP Cares Student Organization.
