Global Mobility of Australian Students.
Many Australian students choose to spend time abroad to develop professional and personal skills that provide them with a competitive edge in a global marketplace.
However, as any professional who’s been on an international assignment knows, the acquisition of cross-cultural competencies prior to departure has a direct correlation on your ability to achieve your personal and professional goals in your new host country. Conversely, someone with limited cultural competence could be seen as a liability in an international environment.
Project Global Citizen sets the cultural foundations for Australian students to be perceived as truly global citizens, no matter where in the world they live.
International Readiness of Australian Industry.
With Australian industry increasingly being exposed to global forces, there’s a growing recognition of the need to employ people from different cultural backgrounds and leverage their international experience and insights.
However, a strategic challenge for international students seeking employment in Australia is their ability to “get a foot in the door” and to be seen as a cultural asset to an organisation rather than a liability (often referred to by employers as a “poor cultural fit”).
This is where Project Global Citizen has a prominent role in helping Australian industry with its international-readiness. We develop cultural competencies of international students so that they’re a good cultural fit for any organisation, whether that’s in Australia or anywhere else in the world.
