International Students Career Series: How to Navigate Small Talk

"In the United States, many people participate in what is called """"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""small talk"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""", where you make conversation with strangers or acquaintances about non-controversial topics, such as the weather, sports, or popular television shows. “Small talk” is one of the ways in American culture to chat about harmless topics in order to establish a connection and start to build a friendship.

For example, while waiting for an interview, in line at a M-Den, or in an elevator on campus, don’t be startled if a stranger says something to you like, “Did you watch the Football Game last night? What a game!” They might also make a joke about the long line you’re both in, or comment on the current situation.

If you are interested in learning more about """"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""small talk"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""", now it’s your chance to sign up for this workshop on how to navigate small talk as an international student. In this workshop, we will educate you on what is small talk and you will also have the chance to practice small talk with Peers!"
