"International education is a vibrant industry, but it’s also extremely small with a lot of cliques and ‘in crowds’ that can be tough to infiltrate."

One of the most critical AND most challenging parts of launching your career in this field is developing your community.

International education is a vibrant professio, but it’s also extremely small with a lot of cliques and ‘in crowds’ that can be tough to infiltrate.

Going to a conference where you don’t know a soul is scary and intimidating. Not having peers and colleagues to share ideas with, get feedback, or just vent can feel really lonely. And it was one of the biggest challenges I faced early in my career.

Because community and relationship building are so important, we’ve made community building and networking cornerstones of the Global Pro Institute.

By joining GPI you become a member of a vibrant community of like-minded peers who will become your closest friends, colleagues, and network as you grow your career.



From grad assistant to senior vice president to CEO, and many other titles and positions in between.

I've spent the past 10 years building an extremely successful career in the international education and meaningful travel industries.

I’ve seen nearly every side and perspective of this field and have experienced first-hand what it takes to not only launch a global career, but build one that thrives.

I’ve mentored individuals and teams, presented to auditoriums of hundreds coaching them to build dynamic and exciting careers they love.




“I’ve been working mostly on the margins of international education my entire lengthy career, and was looking to make the plunge into a full-time role. While I had vast and in-depth experience in many countries throughout the world, what I did not have was specific knowledge about the diverse components of the international education sector. I did not know its history of growth in the U.S.; I did not know the multitude of players in the third party provider world; I did not know the many layers and functions within a university setting; I did not know any senior level executive in the sector; I did not know how to position myself for potential employers; I did not know how to craft my resume; and I did not know for certain if this was really the sector for me.

What GPI did was make me knowledgeable in all those areas, which gave me the confidence to tailor my search in the most effective way possible. Especially beneficial were the Master Classes, where I thought I would hear from mid-level managers for 30 minutes on their roles, but what I got was 60 minutes or more with the top executives and sometimes the actual founders of prestigious providers, institutions, or universities. And GPI’s founder, Brooke Roberts, had such an extensive grasp of the trade, and taught her classes and conducted interviews with such enthusiasm and positive energy that I was sad to see the program end! GPI’s easy to use online format and measured pace of the coursework were perfect for my busy overseas life, and Brooke was always available with support if I needed some extra help or a boost in my confidence. I am certain that GPI will become the essential course for anyone contemplating the sector. I don’t know where I would be in my search if I hadn’t found GPI.” - Joe Kaesshaefer, Senior US Foreign Service Officer

"I directly attribute my current employment to GPI; it was an important first step. I had signed up to volunteer for an organization, but never heard back from the volunteer coordinator, who shortly thereafter left the organization and sent out an email asking us to reach out to her. After watching Module 3, I decided to add her on Facebook, and she immediately offered me an internship, which turned into a job!" - Sonia Meyer

“GPI helped me begin to assemble a toolkit for building my career in international education. I learned valuable tips about identifying the skills I already have, maintaining and nourishing professional relationships, and writing killer resumes and cover letters that will help me job search like a pro. I'll be forever grateful to GPI for this new knowledge!” -Tiera Greene

"I was making a career change and wanted to explore international education. This program exceeded my expectations! I was so impressed with the amount of material covered, and the in-depth interviews with experts in the field were a great bonus.Brooke Roberts is a dynamic, engaging presenter, and I felt as if I were in the same room with her and not across the country. The insights and career advice that she and Pouneh Eftekhari shared have been so helpful. Last but not least, the Facebook group is a supportive forum for participants to encourage and learn from each other. - Betty Jaros

"GPI helped me solidify my desire to work in International Education/Meaningful Travel (IEMT). The insightful knowledge that Brooke and Pouneh shared were really invaluable and it was great to hear from those who have been through the experience of trying to break into the IEMT field. I also enjoyed getting to communicate with other GPI participants in the Facebook group, getting to share resources, opinions, and experiences as well as knowing that there were other people who were in the same boat of trying to break into the IEMT field.

The breakdown of the modules as well as the various master classes were a great part of this program. Before doing GPI, I had no idea how many different niches there were in IEMT; my eyes were opened to all of the possibilities. Doing GPI was one of the best decisions I’ve made in order to break into the IEMT field.” -Christina Nguyen

"GPI helped me identify and relate my own skill set and experience to positions I'm interested in. Having previous experience as an academic, rather than an IEMT professional, means I have to reposition myself and work on my branding more to let others know what I really want to do. Sometimes you need to have experience to get experience,and sometimes it's more about your network. GPI has made me more aware of my network and the relationships I've built and how to give back as well. And I'm happy to say that I've accepted a job as Associate Director of Research and Scholarship at NAFSA! Thank you GPI!" - Shanna Saubert, PhD

"I signed up for GPI primarily to learn about more professional opportunities in IEMT, learn how to better craft my resume/cover letter and get industry resources. I did not expect to end this course with a career HQ, a bigger network of industry professionals and a confidence to put action to my professional aspirations." - Sarah Davis

As an aspiring professional in the field, I now feel more confident in the knowledge and skills that I have. I can angle them to benefit the field/industry in a positive and innovative direction. To be innovative, I first have to know how the field started and developed, and GPI provided the information and resources to do so. - Adriana Smith

“GPI helped me pinpoint my IEMT interests, build my personal brand and perfect my resume. I feel so much more confident about my choice in a career in IEMT after completing these 6 weeks of interaction with a group of wonderful, intelligent people. I feel positive about the future and look forward to seeing the different directions we all take as we build our careers in IEMT!” - Nicole McCarthy

"GPI has helped me become more intentional about planning my career and building my brand. As a early/mid career professional, I was excited to get started in IEMT after a study abroad experience, and was happy just to be offered opportunities to work in the field. However, it's now time to position myself and build expertise in specific areas to move beyond being hired for what I have done - to what I can do. GPI taught me the skills and strategies to do just that." - Trevor Foley

“GPI provided a broad view on the field of IEMT. I came into the program with only knowledge of study abroad and came out of it with insight on a multitude different career focuses. The personal input and nuances accompanied with the developed content made for a truly comprehensive road map. Two important concepts I took away from this learning experience are to be an action taker and to know your brand.” - Brittany Kindberg

“Originally, I wanted to learn how to differentiate myself from others vying to enter the IEMT field. After completing the GPI program, I feel self-assured that I am able to express my skills, experiences, and overall personal brand accordingly to future employers. The program was also extremely informative in providing a different perspective about the industry, effective ways to network, and how current, established professionals in the field were able to create their own niche.” - Nastacia (Staci) House

"I didn't know what I was doing wrong before and I felt like I had no relevant skills. GPI helped me to build a personal brand, realize that IEMT is a viable career path, and gave me the tools to get noticed. I really liked the networking idea of simply approaching people I'm interested in (to hear their story). Now, I feel excited about networking. It doesn't seem like a chore anymore. Thank you Brooke and Pouneh for giving me hope!" - Amanda Kime

"As someone who has skirted around the International Education industry for about 5 years now, unsure of how to enter, I finally feel ready with a plan on how to find my niche. This affirmed everything I have been doing up to now, which was so critical in a time where I felt that nothing I had done up to this point was going to help set me apart in the field. Thanks for the self-esteem boost." - Arianna Lopez

“GPI took me beyond theory and formal understandings of IEMT and introduced me to the everyday worlds of professionals making contributions similar to those I aspire to achieve. It reminded me of the skills and the network I already had, taught me to build both, and has prepared me to continue to grow in the field. I now have a road map to guide my own progress, and have met an inspiring group of future colleagues eager to helps others learn and engage across the globe.” -Carla Tumbas

GPI has helped me identify a personal branding and networking strategy to improve my search for a job in international education. It also has helped me identify new work opportunities in the field. - Nadia Lefebvre
