Welcome to the Global Career Services Summit 2018

The Global Career Services Summit is a two and a half day event for Heads and Directors of College and University Careers Services.

Now in its third year, the 2018 Summit is being jointly hosted by Careers Service Directors from Newcastle University (UK), University of Cape Town (South Africa), Binghamton University (New York State, USA) and University of California, Irvine (USA).

The purpose of the Summit is to facilitate learning, best practice sharing and collegial dialogue amongst career services providers, in addition to offering plenty of opportunities for social engagement. Through a number of structured workshops, presentations and small group interactions the Summit aims to achieve the following objectives:

  • To create a forum to share observations and insights about the ever-changing world of career services.
  • To discuss the challenges and opportunities which are central to the successful delivery of career services for tomorrow’s students and employers.
  • To acquire an appreciation and understanding of the similarities as well as differences of career services throughout the world.
  • To provide a venue to build a global network of career services colleagues.

While the programme for this event will provide opportunities to achieve all of these objectives and to meet new colleagues, its success, as in past events, relies on your own participation. All sessions will be delivered in English.

We look forward to welcoming you to Newcastle Upon Tyne in England, from 13-15 March 2018.
