Working with Marcelo Barros, we were able to extend our capacity to address the unique needs of our international graduate business students. We collaborated with Marcelo and designed the International Advantage Career Boot Camp which provided strategies to excel in U.S. social, academic, and professional settings, and demonstrated a strengths-based method for finding and landing a job in the U.S. to fulfill students’ OPT or secure an H-1b visa.
Marcelo provided a very practical framework and process to assist students in their job search process. The process Marcelo recommended is helpful to international students as well as domestic students. It is espeacially powerful for international students, because it compels them to use their situation as an advantage. There was a high level of interactive engagement with students throughout Marcelo’s presentation...
I had the pleasure of attending Marcelo's workshop "U.S. Job Search Strategies for International Students" at Stanford Graduate School of Business. As an International student, I aim to work in the US at the end of my studies, and Marcelo provided me and my classmates with useful tools and resources for approaching this challenging task. We worked on a personal SWOT analysis and we discussed the ISEL model (Interest, Skills, Experience, Language) to understand how to best position ourselves to a potential US employer. He also recommended us various free sources to gauge which employers are the most likely to provide a visa sponsorship. As importantly, Marcelo changed our mindset, focusing our attention on what we can influence (a successful job search and an impact on the employer's business) rather than what is beyond our control (the H1B lottery). I truly enjoyed his total competency on the matter, his great communication skills and natural energy. Highly recommended!
