You’ve lived abroad. You feel alive when you explore other cultures. You love being surrounded by people who are passionate about international education. You were born to learn and teach.

But you’re having a hard time finding that PERFECT international or intercultural education job.


  • Have international experience and dream of working in the field of international and intercultural education
  • Have been laid off, recently graduated or are working in a job you don’t love
  • Need affordable advice about a career in study abroad, intercultural training or consulting
  • Feel frustrated that your passion and experience have not yet translated into a meaningful career
  • Have considered consulting, but don’t know where to begin
  • Crave honest feedback about what the work in international education, intercultural training or consulting entails, including the “good, the bad and the ugly”
  • Are tired of hearing people say that it is impossible to be hired in this economy


I’ve participated in call-in conferences before, and this was by far the best! -Class Participant


Here’s what we’ve got for you:

  • Three 1-hour teleclass recordings (that you can download and listen to at your convenience)
    > Class # 1 :: How to Work in Study Abroad
    Class # 2 :: How to Work as an Intercultural Trainer
    Class # 3 :: How to Work as a Global Education/Intercultural Consultant
  • 98 pages of innovative handouts and resource lists that go way beyond links to websites
  • Bonus resources
  • Honest answers to questions like: What’s a typical “day in the life”? What kind of training or education do I need? Where can I get this training? What are the best and worst things about this work? What kind of skills do I need? What are the travel opportunities? (and more…)

You will finish this series

  • Having a more holistic understanding of each career option.
  • Better prepared for your job search and interviews.
  • Eager to create actionable steps toward your goal.
  • Confident that you are moving in a logical direction towards your goals.

This is a series of go-at-your-own pace “instant-access” teleclasses based on the live classes we held in late 2011. As soon as you register, you’ll receive an email with a link to our private members-only website that you can access as often as you like 24/7.

You’ll have access to the teleclass recordings plus handouts chock full of tips, hints, and resources. You’ll get bonus resources as well.

Oh, and did we mention that you get lifetime updates for free? Yes, you read that right! Whenever we refresh the program you will have full access to every update. Most people make you pay for “version 2.0″, but we’d like to give it to you on the house.

What are the advantages of a go-at-your-own pace teleclass? You get the class recording + handouts now – so you don’t have to wait for the next live class (if we even offer it again) to further your career. You can listen to the whole thing in one afternoon…or take your time. And, since this is a teleclass instead of a webinar you’re not chained to your computer. You can download the handouts + recordings to your computer or iPod and get a head start on your career of your dreams while you jog, grocery shop or do the dishes!

Amazing handouts!!!! -Class Participant
