2014 Virtual International Opportunities Career Fair

About the Fair

The Virtual International Opportunities Fair, an online career fair, is for Penn students and alumni who are interested in international opportunities.

Through PennLink you can "visit" the International Opportunities Fair to meet representatives from globally-oriented organizations, companies, and schools that provide teaching, internship, work opportunities and post-graduate education abroad. The online format of the fair enables you to make contact with employers by viewing their profiles and submitting resumes to employers/positions that interest you. After the fair is over, employers will receive the resumes you sent and will contact you directly if they're interested in an interview.

To participate in the Virtual International Opportunities Fair:

  • Log into PennLink by using your Pennkey. If you do not have an account already, you will be asked to complete a brief profile.
  • Upload or update your resume (if you haven't done so already) by clicking on the "Documents" tab. 
  • Click on "Virtual International Opportunities Fair" under the "Events" box on the right.
  • To express your interest in an organization, click "EXPRESS INTEREST" to submit your resume.
