Abstract

As universities recruit greater numbers of international students and governments seek to retain them as skilled workers, researchers have started to again investigate their integration experiences. A gap in the literature is the long-term career integration of international students, particularly the contextual influences that affect it. One such influence is that of university student services. This pilot study looked at the perspectives of three university student service personnel in career services, international student services, and alumni and leadership services and the ways in which they are working with international students to support their workplace integration. Specifically, this study highlighted the tensions university student services personnel face in providing relevant support while adhering to institutional policy, the gaps in their ability to help students, and ideas about future directions in their work with students.
