Research indicates employers broadly value the knowledge and skills gained through international experiences. Yet students and their advisors often struggle with how to articulate the experience in terms that are relevant to prospective employers. How do you help students elevate the “study abroad” experience beyond a bullet point on a resume or an anecdote at the interview?
Hear from study abroad and career office professionals who are collaborating to assist students in connecting the study abroad experience with their career aspirations.
The webinar will provide participants with:
- Research findings on what employers are looking for
- Strategies for coaching students to set career-related goals for their study abroad experience and then demonstrate its value
- Ways to integrate career development and study abroad programming
- Examples of practical tools to guide student job search preparation
