Previous professional experience working as a program officer for higher education study abroad offices brings a uniquely qualification to assist study abroad providers, partners, and higher education offices with their study abroad needs. Strategic location in the mid-Atlantic region of the United States translates to easy access to a number of colleges and universities. Rather than send company staff from around the world for business and program development and management of study abroad programs, Jump Start Solutions (JSS) is available for interim or short-term support, representing your company in real time, with less expense than traditional outreach efforts of sending your own staff, abroad.
What JSS brings is experience that includes advising students individually and in group advising sessions, identifying appropriate study abroad and global work experiences to match the students’ academic requirements and career goals, creating career development resources, guiding students on how to produce cover letters and resumes for internship study abroad programs, and coaching students on their interview skills, business protocol, and business etiquette.
Whether the need is for new program development, cultivating new partnerships, representation at study abroad fairs, or assisting students with info sessions or orientations for visa applications, we can customize support services to meet your needs.
Through personal and professional experience abroad, JSS understands the perspective of colleges, universities, and program providers–as well as that of the student. Today’s students have unique challenges that require creative and innovative approaches to student outreach, retention, and advising. Students who wish to study abroad today are greatly motivated by their academic and career goals. JSS connects well with students as a result of personal, educational, and work experiences. JSS is also greatly familiar with the broader university academic and student services structures, which is a great asset in helping education abroad partners and providers in developing new business relationships, and managing existing study abroad programs.
Not all businesses need support services year-round. It is important to understand the ebbs and flows of business needs. For that reason, Jump Start Solutions is an ideal answer for interim support, as your business needs, as much or as little as needed, when you need it.
