How Are Program Designed?
Global Career Center partners with universities to develop and deliver experiential programs. Examples of current initiatives include team projects, internship placements, and employability services but keep in mind GCC can customize programs to meet the unique needs of our university partner.
Team-Based Projects GCC will source and support consulting projects from our global network of employers for teams of up to 5 students each. Projects can be onsite or remote, stand alone or imbedded into the semester, and can last from 4-10 weeks.
Internship Placements GCC will assist in development and delivery of your internship program domestically or internationally while providing a range of services from placement to visa support to onsite social & cultural activities.
Embed employability services within the student experience. GCC will work with your management team to enhance existing diploma, certificate, and traditional degree programs by incorporating specialized services, such as career readiness workshops & placements, based on industry area, student population, and university need.
Reach out to GCC Academic Partnerships and discuss immediate program needs or strategic planning based on the unique opportunities for your university or college.
What Can Learners Expect?
“The placement is going well. I am already getting better at presenting my ideas and understanding a more structured workflow of a company. I am scheduled to have meetings with some of the employees to ask questions about more specific things. Everyone is really nice, honest and competent. I am glad I took the job and I appreciate you finding it for me.”

Thank you again for all your help! Today I asked Tracy if I can get involved in one of their art consulting projects and they let me in! I'm very excited about the project I'm working on 😊

I'm very excited to announce that I will be joining Babydev Lab at the University of East London this summer! I feel incredibly honoured to be working with such a driven team on the neurodevelopment linguistics research on infants and toddlers. Big thank you to global career center for finding me such a wonderful opportunity to grow in my career field.
