On November 4th, the atrium of the Business Building was buzzing with international opportunities and networking. Students who attended were fortunate to connect with international internship organizations, but also some of Smeal’s prestigious alumni. Bill Lane, Washington Director of Governmental Affairs for Caterpillar and passionate advocate for student experiences abroad, opened the evening with a great motivational speech on the importance of a global perspective, specifically in emerging markets of the world. Additionally, students waited in line to speak with company representatives from KPMG, PWC, Intrax, Connect 1-2-3, Global Experiences, and Social Entrepreneurship Corp to learn more about their exciting opportunities.
To apply to these organizations as well as many other opportunities search for Global Impact in the Smeal Symplicity system.
Thank you to the organizations that attended and to the alumni who graciously gave their time to speak with students regarding the importance of international experiences!
