The World to Work Program
Take the World to Work Week 2015: May 11-15
Are you a professional in the Puget Sound region? Your advice and expertise can make a real difference in shaping the career of a visiting student interested in your field!
The FIUTS World to Work Program offers students from around the world an opportunity to connect one-on-one or in small groups with professionals in the Greater Puget Sound region for just a few hours during World to Work Week (May 11-15, 2015). (Students, please click here for information on how you can be involved in World to Work.)
Volunteers can schedule a mutually convenient time and location to meet with students, and meetings can be anything from a formal workplace tour or job shadowing to a casual meeting over coffee. Sign up to volunteer by completing our quick and easy online World to Work Mentor Application by Monday, May 4.
Community members are also invited to join us for the World to Work VIP Networking Reception. Help give students an opportunity to practice their professional networking skills while enjoying complimentary food and wine!
