Seeking Work Overseas in the Time of COVID – GlobalPDX Virtual Lunch and Learn

05/28/2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Seeking Work Overseas in the Time of COVID – with Sam Healy, Ashley Emerson, and Niels Marquardt
GlobalPDX’s upcoming Lunch & Learn on Thursday, May 28, Noon – 1PM, will focus on finding meaningful overseas career and employment opportunities.  The scope will include working in the foreign service or other government programs, the Peace Corps or other volunteer organizations, NGOs, international teaching, and/or the private sector abroad.  Especially today, there is no quick route to these jobs or careers, but COVID makes this a good time to start planning the steps that will get you there eventually.  
Lewis & Clark alumni Niels Marquardt and Sam Healy and Ashley Emerson will lead this discussion on the basis of their combined five-plus decades working abroad.  Sam and Niels each served as Peace Corps Volunteers, and later joined the foreign service as American diplomats.  Niels is also a former CEO of the American Chamber of Commerce in Australia. Ashley had lived and worked in 12 countries. Between them, Sam, Niels and Ashley have lived and worked in over 30 foreign countries, from Africa and Asia to the South Pacific and Europe.  Bring your questions, don’t expect any “silver bullets,” and be part of this interesting discussion of the careers out there and strategies to find them.

Seats are limited for this event, but the session will be recorded and published on the Training Library of the GlobalPDX Member’s Portal. Get your tickets now to ensure your access to this fantastic opportunity.
