Dave Stakebake and Lily Schwartz are part of GCU's Career Services which has launched a new service to help alumni and students find out about the global world of work.

Dave Stakebake and Lily Schwartz are part of GCU’s Career Services team that has launched a new tool to help alumni and students better navigate employment opportunities.

It’s been a busy month as Grand Canyon University welcomes more than 11,000 students on campus for the 2014-2015 academic year. In order to meet the needs of the growing population of GCU graduates, Career Services has expanded its online tools.

The latest resource, called GoinGlobal, is available now to GCU alumni and students. GoinGlobal gives them access to more than 16 million internship and job opportunities throughout the United States and across the globe. Alumni and students can read about employment trends, salary ranges, resume guidelines, interview tips and work-permit information in more than 34 countries. Additionally, they are given valuable advice about the culture of each country listed and common etiquette practices. Contact information is provided for area recruiters, staffing agencies and networking groups, both professional and social.

Jacqueline Smith, director of career services at GCU, is looking forward to having the new tool in use. “I am so excited for what GoinGlobal offers alumni and students,” Smith said. “It operates like a virtual career center and is like having a Realtor, employment recruiter, chamber of commerce and department of tourism all in one place!”

Stop by the GCU Career Services office in Camelback Hall or call 602-639-6606 to connect.
