HE RETURNED FROM TWO YEARS IN ASIA AND HAD NO IDEA HOW TO BREAK INTO INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION STATESIDE:
"Missy and the IECA have been a practical resource for my international education career and job search that I was simply unable to find anywhere else. The IECA resume reviews, webinars, and resources have proven immensely valuable to me- However it was Missy's advice to think of my job search and selection in the context of a career that have been the most beneficial in the long run. Because of this perspective, I aligned myself with organisations and roles that gave me the skillset which enabled me to qualify for my current role." - Jake Reckford, Client Manager, IDP Connect

SHE WAS WORKING IN TECHNOLOGY BUT LONGING FOR STUDY ABROAD STUDENT CONTACT:
"I was so glad to find the IECA when I did. I knew I wanted to work in study abroad and had been applying for jobs for several years without success. Midway through my M.Ed. program I started the IECA to help me in the IE job market once I got my degree. I found the resume and cover letter makeover and the interview prep to be the most valuable exercises in the program. Missy helped me translate almost 9 years of seemingly unrelated work experience into a one page resume and cover letter that made potential employers take notice. I even used what I learned to help job-seeking friends in other fields." Ms Ryan Rounds, Study Abroad Specialist, Western Michigan University
WHAT YOU'LL GAIN FROM THE IECA:
- SHINE: You can have studied and traveled abroad extensively, but if you don't know how to position the experience beyond "it was life changing," you are not going to get very far in this job search journey. We teach you how to deeply explore what your niche/s is/are using our unique yellow scarf methodology so you can shine and stand out.
- CONFIDENCE: The IECA methodology teaches you how to craft your strategic resume, cover letter and other documents using a logical and intuitive method that doesn't feel forced or intimidating. Past participants frequently comment on how they feel so much more confident in their job search, but also in their abilities, because of not only what we show you but HOW we show you.
- COMMUNITY: We make this one easy. You'll be part of one of the most exciting private communities of international educators out there when you enroll. Our alumni network has not only resulted in job connections and insider knowledge about job posts, but it has also yielded sincere friendships.
- SHIFT: Alumni who have moved through this program still tell me how the skills learned in the IECA help them breeze through those moments of frustration in the job search (and life!) in a much more healthy way. Our red balloon exercise is one that participants use again and again.
- AGILITY: The irony of the job search in international education/higher education is that it often is a traditional field that requires a lot of innovative agility in the interview. The IECA shows you how you can be your most agile self, even when your DNA doesn't scream "bendy!".
- WORLD: Your world class job, after all, is why you're here.The IECA has approximately a 90% interview and over 80% job success rate (at last count) for those who do the work in this program. We're excited to show you why our results are so high. We intend to move you from imagining your office at your dream job to unpacking it.

Hi! I'm Missy Gluckmann and I'm delighted you stopped by to read about the IECA.
I created this program after nearly 25+ years in international education across many different universities, taught ESL, and had a robust career in Human Resource consulting for a Fortune 500 company. One of my greatest joys is leading folks on a journey of self discovery in the international education job search process. We have helped recent grads to seasoned professionals land in great jobs at places like Princeton University, Arizona State University, John Hopkins, New York University, State University of New York, Florida State University, UNC Chapel Hill, Duke University, UC Berkely, a range of community colleges, and providers such as CIEE, Spanish Studies Abroad, CEA, and CisAbroad - to name just a few!
So let's do this - I have the track record - and trust me - YOU have the goods! :)
Enrollment for the IECA is now closed.
