St. Louis Mosaic Project continues its efforts to assist International Students with new Consultant Abby Huang

St. Louis Mosaic Project, part of the World Trade Center-STL of the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership, is pleased to announce that Abby Huang will be the next part-time International Student Training Consultant. She will work across area universities to help their international students with programs on networking and interviewing for jobs with St. Louis companies.  The St. Louis Mosaic Project has a goal of attracting 25,000 foreign-born to the region in the 2016-2025 time frame to help offset stagnation of native born population, and retaining more of the approximately 9,000 international students in the STL region will help the region build more talent in the workforce pipeline.

Abby Huang, originally from China and now a US citizen, came to St. Louis for graduate school as a McDonnell Scholar at Washington University. She holds a B.S. from Fudan University and an MBA from Olin Business School at Washington University. She has been a part-time career advisor at Olin Business School and has advised hundreds of students in different degree programs on job search requirements. She has over 18 years of business experience in both China and the US and currently works part-time as a strategic pricing manager at a publishing company.  

About the St. Louis Mosaic Project

The St. Louis Mosaic Project was launched in 2012 in response to an economic impact report, outlining St. Louis to be lagging in immigrant growth as well as highlighting the economic benefits of increasing its foreign-born population. The Mosaic Project is a regional initiative that is professionally managed by St. Louis Economic Development Partnership, World Trade Center St. Louis and a 32-member committee. Its goal is to transform St. Louis into the fastest growing major metropolitan area for immigration by 2025, to add 25,000 more foreign born to the region from 2016-2025 and to promote regional prosperity through immigration and innovation.
