International and In-Country Students and Alumni

Traveling to a new country and a new culture can be both overwhelming and challenging. We provide international students with transitional support including:

  • comprehensive country/city profiles
  • resources on cross-cultural differences and etiquette
  • volunteer, internship, and job searches
  • résumé/CV and interviewing tips
  • social and expat networking opportunities that help international students adapt to their new environments and succeed academically

We are also a key resource for in-country students and alumni who seek information on volunteering, internships, and jobs. The services we provide not only assist students seeking employment domestically, but also help young professionals start global careers abroad. These services include:

  • Résumé and cover letter writing
  • Interviewing tips
  • Comprehensive lists and databases of volunteer opportunities, internships, and jobs

Undergraduate, Graduate, or Post-Grad

Higher education institutions are now encouraging students and scholars to consider their career options abroad as they transition into the professional world. Students at any point in their academic careers can utilize Passport Career to secure internships, jobs, and volunteer opportunities using resources such as:

  • employment opportunity databases
  • country & city profiles

Study Abroad Programs

We help students get the most out of their study abroad experience. Globally bound students can easily find volunteer opportunities, internships, and jobs on their institution’s dedicated study abroad site. Study abroad students also benefit from our comprehensive country and city profiles, which help students select and prepare for their chosen study abroad experience, and provide advice on adjusting to a new environment upon arrival.


International Faculty/Scholars

Information available to international faculty and scholars includes:

  • comprehensive country/city destination information
  • expertise on cross-cultural differences and local business etiquette
  • extensive lists of professional networking opportunities, which increase the faculty/scholar’s productivity and effectiveness in the new work environment from day one
  • comprehensive lists of social and expat networking possibilities, which lead to faster adjustment and satisfaction with a new home country/city


International Faculty/Scholar Spouses and Partners

One of the most common causes of international job refusal and expat turnover is the issue of spouse/partner employment abroad. However Passport Career provides employers with a high-quality, low-cost online career support system that accompanying spouses/partners can use to obtain employment and seek employment alternatives.

Our comprehensive country/city destination profiles and our expert knowledge on cross-cultural differences and local business etiquette are excellent tools for faculty going abroad on sabbatical. Our extensive lists of professional, social and expat networking opportunities lead to higher job satisfaction and quality of life in a new country or city.

HR Professionals

HR professionals are constantly busy supporting internationally assigned faculty/staff, spouses/partners, and families. Passport Career makes their jobs easier. We provide detailed information, training, and support directly to the end user. Our Resources section offers data, surveys, presentations, white papers, lists of providers, and other useful reference information. We also offer White Globe Services specifically tailored to individual users.


General Employees and Faculty

Due to globalization, an increasing number of professionals participate in foreign negotiations and business travel abroad. Employees also increasingly interact with colleagues and students either from other countries, or working on country-specific assignments. Academic institutions utilizing our services can rest assured that their staff have a working knowledge of the foreign countries they interact with the most. Our resources for increasing cultural competency include:

  • information on cross-cultural differences
  • tips on local social/business etiquette
  • country/city profiles
  • country-specific professional networking information

Academic institutions that provide their employees access to the information we provide both enhance their work performance and increases their institution’s global presence.
