Calling All College Students!

Global Career Bridge brings students pursuing careers in international business (IB) together with our member organizations seeking IB-educated talent. 

Three member companies host groups of students to present key aspects of their business operation that are likely relevant to student career decisions. Guidance is also offered regarding the organization’s recruitment process and how students could best navigate that process. Students have an opportunity to meet several professionals from the organization, tour the facility, and observe culture-revealing aspects of the organization.

Students that participate will receive:

  • Orientation prior to the event
  • Transportation to the host companies
  • Lunch
  • Networking opportunities with hiring managers

There is a nominal cost for students and host organizations which varies by membership type.
