Many international students study in Canada with the goal of permanent immigration. We provide practical suggestions for improving career services for these international students, based on recent research evidence. We describe services and resources from their self-reported “wish list” for transitioning from university to post-degree employment in Canada. Case illustrations and time for interactive discussion will be included.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Understanding the career situation and life context of international students 
  • Learning what they want from on-campus, off-campus, and employer-based services
  •  Considering practical ways to improve career services for this population
