Study Abroad in the USA: 1 Dream, 2 Suitcases, and 3 Important Soft Skills
Speaker: Tam Nguyen, Program Assistant – Center for Global Engagement, James Madison University

There are companies and organizations, as well as advisors and recruiters who inform and educate students about which universities to consider and how to apply. Yet there is not enough readily available and trustworthy resources for students to directly ask and learn about many aspects that are equally important and challenging such as: how to make friends with U.S. students, how to find jobs and internships as an international student, how to speak English comfortably and confidently in both small group settings and larger audience presentations. Sometimes it takes a Vietnamese student who has been studying in the U.S. for almost 10 years to fully understand and openly share with other Vietnamese students all of his honest tips, sincere suggestions, and humbling stories: Duc Tam Nguyen (BBA in Finance and Business Spanish, MBA in Innovation – James Madison University) is hosting a small interactive workshop to help anyone seeking for such unique knowledge become better prepared and inspired.

Tuesday, June 25th, 3:00 – 4:30p.m
