DEADLINE: Nov. 17th, 2013

This winter session, CLI is facilitating the iSPOT Training – International Sustainability Professionals of Tomorrow – in collaboration with ISSP. Kick off the New Year in China and get your sustainability career on track! Specifically designed for college juniors and seniors, the iSPOT Training will transition undergraduate students into young professionals with highly structured professional development workshops and a practitioner-based learning environment. From the bustling streets and skyscrapers of Shanghai, to the mystifying mountains of Guilin, to the Great Wall and Forbidden City of Beijing, students will learn the four key areas of organizational assessment and the strategy behind sustainable systems decision-making. We will also share tips on where to find jobs, what skills are needed in different fields, and how to market yourself in a highly competitive and global job market. Our goal is to prepare you to land your dream green job when you graduate!
