The International Careers Consortium (ICC) was founded in 1982 by a group of career and international student advisors from the Greater Boston Area. Since then it has attracted members from a larger geographic area. The group's original goal was to establish an organization which would further the interest of both American students considering international careers and international students who want to work in the U.S. or abroad in countries other than their own. In 1999, ICC invited Education Abroad professionals to join the group. Over the years ICC has conducted many workshops/conferences on a full range of issues affecting students with international career development goals.
To facilitate knowledge exchange and collaboration between International Student Advisors, Career Development Advisors, Coop/Internship Counselors, and Education Abroad Professionals by providing published materials, hosting relevant and timely conferences, sharing best practices and serving as a resource for identifying ways of increasing international career development opportunities for both domestic and international students.
