I found the article above ringing close to home, mainly because lately I’ve been looking for job opportunities here in the UK, and I’ve been trying to find places where my experiences would come in handy.
That includes everything about me, from being a Malaysian Muslim, to studying undergraduate in the US and postgraduate in the UK and everything in between.
So the main area in my jobsearch are in a university setting, particularly in the Admissions / Student Services / International Office division. Why? One big reason, actually:
Who better to understand international students’ concerns about studying in the UK than a former international student herself?
Plus, I’ve realized that when I’m here in Huddersfield, I see that there’s a gap between the international students community and the home students. Maybe because it’s such a smaller university as compared to UW-Madison in the States, so the gap is more apparent.
And it’s not just here in Huddersfield itself, which is why I think it’d be a great opportunity if I was able to get a job in those areas, particularly to help address the issue. Wish me luck! :)
