About the Episode

About the Episode: If you’re an American working at an American college or university, you’re most likely comfortable with many of life’s events as we know them–football season, Thanksgiving, “Bowl Season,” the holiday break with holiday parties, the big basketball conference and national tournaments, Easter break, baseball, and lots of happy hours in between. But what about your colleagues from outside of the U.S., especially those from the other side of the world with different social and faith practices? 

Kinnari “Kin” Sejpal knows what it’s like to live life differently as an international employee. While enjoying her work experience, sometimes it can actually be a little lonely. Kin visited “I Wanna Work There!” to discuss the world of the international employee and how they can be supported. 

To boost the talent experience for international employees, here are our three takeaways for this episode:

  • Understand the presence of international employees on your campus,
  • How to be mindful of what international employees’ normal looks like, and
  • Learn how international employees can enhance your campus culture.
