Current Employment: Business Program Manager, Star Group (Bangkok, Thailand)
Internship: Intern, Star Group (Bangkok, Thailand)
Institute Advantage: From the Career Management course and mandatory career advising sessions to two major career fairs, I was pushed to think of a career early on and prepare for it. Along with the challenging academic programs and strong support network, I became more confident in job hunting, which would have otherwise been a daunting task. I found my internship with Star Group at an Institute career fair in February 2016. I received a job offer in February 2017 and moved to Bangkok in July 2017.
