This module is the holy grail of networking information for international students. This module is for every student and working professional who comes from a different country or culture in U.S. Students with no work experince in U.S could be really benefitted from this module. This is all the information that I learned by working at my university as a student for 18 months. How to send emails, how to network, how to communicate, how to follow up, how to not be awkward, how to improve English/vocabulary, when to communicate, where to communicate. Just go through it and you will not regret reading this module.
