About ICAway

ICAway (I-SEE-A-WAY) helps international students find CPT, OPT, and H-1B jobs through comprehensive networking & career branding training. As a trusted advisor for colleges and universities’ career services and ISSS, ICAway has launched its Train-the-Trainer workshop to help international higher education professionals better understand international student barriers and provide a support system to meet their needs.

According to “A Passport to Work” written by Karin Fischer, while more colleges have invested in programming to help orient and integrate international students in recent years, many campuses have been slower to focus on career services tailored to their particular needs.

International students usually feel unprepared and find the American job search process to be quite difficult. ICAway’s programs have helped students and universities solve this problem.

The ICAway Train-the-Trainer (TTT) program is designed to help career services and campus partners understand the barriers that international students come across during the job search process. This program includes the current state assessment of the international student support system, a LIVE workshop for the advisors, post-program recommendations, an international student webinar series, and ongoing support.
