Our speaker, Newton Porter, from CareerScore has helped thousands of students with their job search over the last 7 years. In this webinar, he covers exciting factors such as the effects of COVID-19 on job hunting, and asks “are the existing strategies for job search working?”, and if not, what more can we do? Porter also shares some resources that every international student can use. Watch it on our YouTube channel here.


The U.S. Healthcare System for International Students & COVID-19:

Healthcare is notoriously expensive and complicated in the U.S. Watch this session to learn how to make the most of your health insurance plan as an international student. Our guest speaker, Jennifer Frankel, has helped thousands of students over the last 11 years in selecting the best health insurance plan for them. In this webinar, she explains the U.S. healthcare system and its terminologies, walks you through how to choose the best plan for yourself, and how you can get the most out of your health insurance (e.g. where do you go if you’re sick or need medicine?)
