    Have you recently returned from studying abroad and are experiencing reverse-culture shock? Friends and family already tired of hearing about your incredible experience abroad? Come join us in a discussion on ‘now what?!’
     
  • 5 p.m. to 5:50 p.m.: RESUME, COVER LETTER AND LINKEDIN
    Less than 2% of all U.S. students study abroad during their college years, so graduating with a study abroad experience gives you a unique advantage when applying for internships or jobs after graduation. During this session we will give you advice on how to capitalize on your study abroad experience on a resume, in a cover letter, and on LinkedIn.
     
  • 6 p.m. to 6:50 p.m.: JOB INTERVIEWS
    Don’t squander your study abroad experience in job interviews with “It was great” comments. Come learn how to sell your study abroad experience in a job interview.
