According to a study conducted by IES Abroad, “More than 75% of study abroad alumni say that their experience helped them develop communication skills, self-confidence, adaptability and cultural understanding. Furthermore, half of study abroad alumni say that studying abroad helped them to get their first job after college.” In this 2-part series, we’ll show you how to incorporate the skills you’ve learned abroad into your elevator pitch, resume, cover letters and interviews in order to stand out in an applicant pool. This event is ideal for students who have studied abroad, but open to prospective study abroad students, as well.

Part 1 on Monday, Oct. 1: Networking and Your Elevator Pitch – Led by Susan Daniels, Public Speaking Associate in the Writing Center

Part 2 on Wednesday, Oct. 3: Resumes, Cover Letters, and Interviews – Led by Laura Litwiller, Associate Director for Career Advising in the Loeb Center

*Both sessions will take place in Barrett Hall, Room 105 at 7 p.m. Light refreshments will be served and the first ten students to attend each workshop will receive a LimeRed gift card.
